Rebuild Font Cache
« on: August 05, 2017, 02:15:01 PM »
A Windows repair feature that might be worth including as an option in the free version of the Windows Repair utility:

That would be plagiarizing someone else's work.

Not necessarily, if the Tweaking.com software writer were to communicate with that other linked author, and obtain
"official permission" of some kind.
Also: from what I could tell (from reading the comments section), there may be some further modifications needed
to make the software function 100% as intended.

@rvail317: I consider it to be a good suggestion. It's actually quite simple in Windows XP, Vista, & 7.

And in Windows 8:

In Windows 10 one needs to stop the Font Service as well.

But I don't think it should be part of any of the presets in Windows Repair. How often does the fontcache get corrupted ?

FYI: another software program "CCleaner" includes a Font Cache cleaner checkbox option, which may accomplish the same purpose as "rebuild the font cache".
