I didn't notice any impairments when enabling "block untrusted fonts (local) policy on my system.

Yet in MR Home the icons for closing / maximizing and minimizing the main window turn into random ones. Though that these would be using a Windows Default (winform / .net) but appear using a font. It would be great if you could check this using system default font here or other measures.


this is the familiar looks with untrusted font setting disabled (default)

Hi @alQamar,

Thank you for your post.

When the "Untrusted Font Blocking" policy is enabled, Reflect should prompt you with the following dialog box:



Please see here for more information on Reflects use of vector fonts:

Also, please see here for more information on why Microsoft chose to remove the recommendation to enable this policy.

Dear Jamie, thank you for providing the feedback from Microsoft, I have missed that clearly. This request is rendered obsolete, thank you for your technical expertise and cooperation.
