# Fontspec and Microsoft Store fonts on Windows 10

As of April 2018, Windows 10 now installs some fonts through the Microsoft Store or Microsoft Office. These fonts are not installed in the usual font folder C:\Windows\Fonts, but instead in protected folders under C:\Program Files\WindowsApps. The fontspec package can't search this path, so the fonts cannot be used.

Does anyone have a work-around?

Here's a MNWE, compiled with XeLaTeX in the MikTeX package:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\setmainfont{Georgia Pro}
\begin{document}
Hello, World!
\end{document}


The Georgia Pro font is indeed installed on my machine, as I can use it from within Windows-native apps. Older fonts, such as Georgia load without problems.

• According to this you can install such fonts in your fonts folder: geekermag.com/windows-store-fonts-location. Beside this it is not a fontspec question but (for xelatex) of the fontconfig setting and you should better ask in the miktex issue tracker. – Ulrike Fischer Apr 2 at 14:31

You can add the path to your fonts to your localfonts2.conf file. This can be found in C:\ProgramData\MiKTeX\2.9\fontconfig\config and/or C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\MiKTeX\2.9\fontconfig\config.
