    Where can I download the "seguisym.ttf" font package for Windows 8?

    Do you happen to know where I can download the seguisym.ttf font package for Windows 8? I was downloaded a huge set of fonts I've been collecting over the years, and by accident, they pollutes the Windows 8 font and character symbols set. Now all my arrows and other Metro interface icons are missing, replaced by small rectangular boxes. Help!

    Its there already.(SegoeUIsym.ttf) However you need to use something like charmap to view it. Alternatively a file manager like 7-zip will show the font file in the Windows\Fonts folder. Explorer will not open the fonts folder as a normal file folder - it opens it in Control Panel instead, hiding many of the system fonts and only showing the basic character set.

    (The segoeUIsym.ttf in Windows 7 has not got the metro tile icons set in it. Perhaps if the Windows 7 file was put in the Windows 8 Fonts folder it would thoroughly trash metro - anyone up for it?)

    That wasn't very helpful was it? Sorry, I should have read the original post properly.

    You need your original install media for windows 8, and something that will open the /sources/install.wim file. I would recommend 7-zip:

    With 7-Zip installed, navigate to /sources/install.wim and right-click it. Select the 7-zip option on the menu, and open the install.wim.

    In the 7-zip file manager navigate to windows\fonts, and find seguisym.ttf.

    Simply drag it to your desktop. You can close 7-zip. Right-click the seguisym.ttf file on the desktop, amd select install, and replace any version that may be there already, and you should be ok.

    I'd reboot, then check out metro.

    You can rebuild the fonts folder.

    I'm on a Vista PC uke: so I can't be too precise:

    1. Open control panel (in desktop, right-click bottom-left corner of screen)
    2. search for "font settings"
    3. there should be a big button to rebuild fonts.
