Windows 7: Removing SOME Windows 7 Fonts

Removing SOME Windows 7 Fonts

I don't know if this has been asked before, but I would like to know how to remove some of the enormous Win7 font collection.

Not because of any space issues, but solely to help me find the font(s) I might want, without scrolling through the ones I will never use, to find them. There are 192 fonts in my folder, I believe that I need only about half of them. When I have attempted to remove certain fonts, the message appears, <XXXXX Font Cannot Be Removed, Because It Is A System Font>

If this is Win7 installing a fonts set that is meant to be "All for One and One for All", I see it as a backward step, which restricts the ability of the user to do with his/her PC as they see fit. How can I remove these pesky fonts please?
