    not all fonts installed on the system (C:\Windows\Fonts) are shown

    I had not realized it until I tried to use some fonts on Photoshop.
    The fonts are shown on the fonts menu but they donīt seem to be available.
    In the folder C:\Windows\Fonts such fonts that were previously installed are no longer available.
    Anything to do with Windows 10 upgrades ?

    You may have some more in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Fonts but it isn't clear (to me anyway) which you are missing.

    Based on the language used to install Windows, some fonts will be hidden. Go to: C:\Windows\Fonts, click on the detail view (On RHS next to Question Mark), You'd see some Fonts are hidden.

    From Install.wim (Windows installation media), the total # of fonts is 87 are installed both in C:\Windows\Fonts and from the Control panel (Start->Control->Fonts). If some fonts you need to use and hidden, Just right click on the Font and set it to Show.
