> Then, I would get a notification (from my computer, Windows 10) saying that the font was just uninstalled.
I'm sorry that you ran into trouble with this. It sounds like you are running into a bug in the Windows 10 operating system which blocks you from installing new fonts.
If you check the sync log files ( https://helpx.adobe.com/typekit/kb/troubleshoot-font-syncing.html#logs ), you should see an error like:
Error: [livetype] AddFontResourceEx failed, code=0
Error: [livetype] Failed to activate font
You can also feel free to email us your log files at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can confirm this for you.
This is a bug in Windows 10, which we've heard will be fixed in a future update to the operating system.
In the meantime, turning on the firewall in Windows should allow the fonts to sync:
1. From Windows menu on the lower left corner of the screen, go to Settings > Network & Internet > Ethernet > Windows Firewall > Turn Windows Firewall on or off.
2. Turn ON Windows firewall for both public and private networks
3. Then turn off font sync in the Creative Cloud application, wait a moment, and then turn it back on. The option to do this is under the gear icon in Preferences > Creative Cloud > Fonts ("Typekit on/off").
If that doesn't solve it, the next steps to try are:
A. check whether there are any malware blockers installed on this computer, such as Hitman Pro. Sometimes there is an option to "block untrusted fonts" which will need to be turned off to allow Typekit to sync.
B. If your computer managed by your university, there is another setting in Windows where you can tell it to block untrusted fonts, which they might turn on by default. It requires some deep digging to check or change, though, and I would not ask you to do it yourself unless you're familiar with the process already.
Here are the details:
If your computer is managed/set up by the IT department, it would be helpful to ask them whether they have enabled this option on the computer and (if they have) could it be changed?
I hope that this helps,
