Win 10 drop down menus missing symbols

Recently deleted a bunch of fonts & now there are squares where there should be symbols in many of the drop down menus in Windows 10. Searched around & found the supposed missing font is called 'Segoe', so I downloaded & reinstalled the font but the issue persists. Any help is appreciated.

No idea, but serious question....

Who deletes fonts?

Do you have a windows restore point from before you deleted the fonts?

I use Photoshop alot & whenever I'm working with text I have to scroll through a massive amount of foreign/symbol fonts that I never use so i deleted them.

Fixed. Copied / pasted fonts from another PC.
