The file not only seems to be locked and invisible in fonts directory but also right-click context menu is disabled for it... any ideas on how to make this file with normal attributes to do the job? or a tip in replacing it...


C:\Windows\Fonts>takeown /f marlett.ttf

SUCCESS: The file (or folder): "C:\Windows\Fonts\marlett.ttf" now owned by user

but no change seem to take effect...

it seems that I don't have ownership of fonts folder
