    Language Bar Display


    The language bar only displays 3 squares when Thai keyboard is used.
    How to get it to display properly?

    Looks like Thai font wasn't properly installed when installing language. Does Thai works normally otherwise?

    Try reinstalling Thai language, or check in optional features.

    Try checking system files (running "sfc /scannow" in elevated command prompt).

    Did you install supplemental fonts in Settings / Apps / Manage optional features?

    Have not installed any additional fonts.
    Typing in Thai works in Notepad, Word and browser (Chrome) searches.
    If I try naming a folder in thai I get squares only.
    Don't need full language packs only basic typing.

    You could try to install Thai language pack (complete) and then revert back to English display.

    Only found this in MS forums (social.technet.microsoft.com):
    Looks like ti is permissions based. We noticed that the permissions in the font folder for "All Application Packages" was not set properly.

    We have changed it to Full Control and after a reboot, the fonts are back. Also it allows us to add them as well.
    Edit: did you change any system fonts with Winaero (or similar)?

    I have used Macrium for the last 3-4 years. Very good.
    What was actually missing was the thai font Leelawadee.
    Just installed that font on another PC and got everything working there as well without a fresh install!

    @fyrekrig thanks for posting back about solution.
    Can you provide some details about font installation - what is the file name, so others could find it and download? To help other users in future. If I understood you correctly, you have had this problem on multiple computers?
