Unicode Filename in Windows 7

Today, out of sudden, my Windows 7 seems does not display unicode filename anymore in Windows Explorer. It doesn't help even I reboot my laptop multiple times.

After searching on the web, it seems like to solution is simple.

  1. Goto c:\windows\fonts
  2. Right click on the "Ming Liu" font and choose "Show".
  3. Reboot.
In order to prevent it happens again in the future:
  • From "Start", type "control" to open the "Control Panel".
  • At the top-right search box, type "fonts".
  • Choose "View installed fonts".
  • At the left pane, choose "Font settings".
  • Uncheck "Hide fonts based on language settings".
