    uninstalled fonts not showing up in folder

    I have over 25,000 fonts and have been trying to organize them. I have sorted them into folders such as serifs, san serifs etc. The san serif folders says that it has 1322 fonts in it but only about 1/3 of them are showing up. The last one showing is Eamon. Before I realized that they were just not showing up rather than missing, I tried to replace some of the "missing" ones, but am told that the folder already contains that font, do I want to replace. I tried opening the folder in command prompt and using dir to see what all was in there but it showed even less than in explorer. (Windows 10) Any ideas?

    That is a lot of fonts. If in the Windows Font folder, you cannot place them in different folders, they have to stay there. Also you may just want to remove those fonts that you never use.

    Windows can automatically hide fonts that it does not need, because that was how they have designed it since Windows 7.

    I would try a font manager for what you are doing. Just make sure to back up your system first.
