    How to recover missing AppBar icons in Windows 8.1


    Greetings, Windows 8 users.

    I have a problem. This is happened after I transferred fonts from old Windows 7 folder to the current Windows 8 font folder. The icons on the AppBar is missing and left with 2 or 3 boxed-characters (unknown fonts).

    This is a proof that AppBar icons are missing:

    Do you have any idea to recover the AppBar icons into normal?

    Thank you very much. But what about for the other icons, e.g:
    - Sorting Button (Apps by name, etc.)
    - Search Button
