How To Manage Them

So, installing them is easy enough; but what happens if you want to manage your fonts?

First, right-click the Start button and click Control Panel.

Then, if you use Large/Small Icons view, you can just click Fonts.

If you use Category view, you’ll have to click Appearance and Personalization first, then Fonts.

You’ll see a screen full of all the fonts currently installed on your computer. This is where all the default fonts are stored, as well as any fonts you may have installed in the past. If you want to modify or delete the fonts on your PC, this is where you need to be!

By right-clicking each font file, you can see the preview file for it, as well as print out the font if you want to see how it looks on paper.  If you want to delete one, you can click Delete instead and get rid of it from your system.
