Btw. Where would I find that folder ! I tried searching for it in my new computer but only found fonts under settings.
Indeed, it seems like they moved it to settings. But in settings, it says you can drag and drop fonts to install. (Windows 10)

True. But I wanted to be able to take it off a different computer, I don't see that option anywhere

Sure, you can copy and paste that into windows explorer. It's essentially the same as "C:\Windows\Fonts" but will work for those who have their windows installation on a different drive letter.

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Press Windows key + R, type "fonts", press enter.
Never thought of doing it that way, that should be quicker :)


ETA: Notice my corrections?;)

I can't place a call, using Google voice, from my desktop.Worked until now, and doesn't work now in any browser.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

From my phone it works.

Check to make sure you've given the browser the correct access.

Not yet.
Do you keep calling the same number and it's failing or are you trying other numbers as well?

Multiple numbers.
It says this call was disconnected.
And 2 options come up.
Cancel, or retry.
