Find fonts that aren't in the Windows\Fonts folder
Date Added: 8/17/2017

If you see a font in a program, like Microsoft Office, but you don't see that font in the c:\Windows\Fonts folder, then it's probably linked from another folder somewhere.  To find it, open regedit and browse to Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts.  That key will show you a list of all the installed fonts, and where they are installed at.
