  1. Installed Huge Font Collection - Can't Remove Tried Everything


    I've made an epic mistake, and installed 30,000 third party fonts.
    They installed fine, but no matter what I do I cannot even delete one of them.

    I've tried Font Settings in Control Panel, tried restoring to default (doesn't do anything),
    and downloaded numerous font managers, which see the fonts, but won't let me delete them.

    I've also tried gaining access to the folder directly, but there is no security tab on the files or folder.
    I'm at my wits end here, I really do not wish to wipe the OS and have to reconfigure and reinstall the dozens of apps I have. This is a studio PC, and has been set up painstakingly.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

  3. How to Hide Fonts


    Can you name some other 3rd party solutions because I can't seem to find any that actually hides the fonts from appearing in applications like Microsoft Word. It's so annoying to have this huge long list.

    I've tried NexusFont as it's one of the more popular programs and it does not hide the fonts that I do not want in Microsoft Word. It's still there. Nexus font simply categorizes all the fonts that you have. It's a little annoying because if you want to use it, Nexus Font takes a while to load.

    Hello,

    I found these steps in this forum from back in 2010:

    Step 1:

    I would suggest you to try these steps and check whether it helps in fixing your issue.

    Open font settings by clicking on start, click on control panel, and then click on appearance and personalization, under fonts click on change font settings. And select the font size.

    Step 2:

    If you’re trying to change windows font size then please follow the steps below:

    To change Windows fonts

    1. Open Appearance Settings by clicking the Start button and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type window color, and then click Change window colors and
    metrics
    .

    2. In the Item list, click the part of Windows that you want to change the font for. For example, if you want to change the menu font, click Menu in the list. Then, make any of the following changes:

    · In the Font list, click the font that you want to use.

    · In the Size list, click the font size that you want.

    · In the Color list, click the font color that you want.

    3. Repeat these steps for each item that you want to make changes to, and then click OK.

    Does that help?
