    Missing button images


    Hi there all,

    I have a very odd question to ask, all the buttons at the bottom of the start window are missing. Dose anyone have any thoughts as to how to get them back? See screen image, as they say a picture tells 1000 words.

    Thanks very much for your help in anticipation.

    Kind regards

    John

    Hi TLCJohn, welcome to the forums, another member has solved similar problems in this thread, if you are unable to find another PC to get the copies of the fonts, just do a Refresh (Tutorial 2nd option), you need to have your DVD and not forgetting to back up any important(if you have) materials to an external disc.

    Hi there brummyfan.

    I had this problem, the font family you need is "Segoe ui" Just put the family back in the fonts folder and you are done. Hope this helps.

    Please see the two images below.
