# How can I restore the original Windows 7 fonts from its DVD?

I replaced the original Windows 7 fonts with some bad fonts!

How can I acquire the original Windows 7 fonts from its DVD and extract them? I looked on the DVD but couldn't find any folders named fonts.

If you extract the Sources\install.wim file, you can open it with 7-zip (available on Ninite for quick installing).

Then go to \1\Windows\Fonts and extract.

Install.Wim contains every edition of Windows (Home, Ultimate e.t.c.), Each number refers to a different installation.

That being said, the fonts from all editions are the same, so it doesn't matter what folder you use.

I would recommend you go to safemode, and simply extract to a temporary folder, then overwrite all the fonts in c:\windows\fonts with these... or manually click on every one and do install.
