 Can't Install new Font

If you don't see that option, it may be that you have exceeded Windows' font
limit.

Fonts folder has lost its system properties.
 This will be obvious if viewing the fonts folder. You will not have
 the names and the "Install new font" option under file.
 If so:
 Check the protection in Properties on folder c:\windows\fonts
 If it is not shown with a check in System, then you cannot install
new fonts. It should also be protected, so you may not be able to
alter from Explorer.
 Restart in DOS mode and use command
    attrib +s c:\windows\fonts
 Reboot and all should be OK

 or...
 Use TweakUI
Tweak UI 1.33 for Windows 2000, Windows NT, Windows Millennium
Edition, Windows 98 or Windows 95.

The system attribute is is normally the problem and the DOS fix is the
solution in the majority of the last few hundred responses I have made
to similar problems. The Fonts folder will not function as a special
folder without the system attribute. The other common problem is that
the hidden desktop.ini is missing or corrupt and TweakUI will fix
that.
There is a third problem mentioned here but, in my experience, this
one is uncommon.
(Fontext.dll file may be missing or damaged)

Many Thanks to Alan
Changing Fonts folder attributes does do the trick :-)

I didn't know there is a font limit for Windows.

What is it, please?

And can it be increased?

If so, how?

The limit varies according to operating system, font names, filenames
and path if not in the Fonts folder.
