On Windows computers, you can run the "FontView.exe" program to preview glyphs of any font file.

For example, you can run this command to view glyphs in the Calibri Italic font:

\fyicenter>C:\windows\system32\FontView.exe C:\windows\fonts\calibrii.ttf

You see the FontView screen displaying font information and some sample glyphs in different sizes: You see all 4 fonts are working correctly now:

Font name: Calibri
Version: Version 5.74
OpenType Layout, Digital Signed, TrueType Outlines
...
