Windows 7: font management software

font management software

I'm looking for font management software. I don't want to fill my windows/fonts folder with my own fonts every time I'm working on a project. I want to keep my fonts separate and only turn them on when needed. Like temporary fonts. Then turn them off again. The windows/fonts folder shouldn't be touched/enlarged, just containing the default windows fonts.

Any advice? I guess it isn't possible to temporarily turn on fonts without installing them in the windows/fonts folder?

That sounds like a good idea but I don't know of anything that will do that. Modern PC's and moder OS' such as Win 7 do not have a problem with a large amount of fonts. And, if you are having space problems on the hard drive, it's really time to upgrade the hard drive rather than limit items such as the fonts.

There are a few that suit your needs - Downloads (NexusFile, NexusFont, NexusImage)

AMP Font Viewer - Complete font manager: view, organize, install, delete and print fonts lists (TrueType, OpenType and Type 1) - AMPsoft

You can also install fonts as a shortcut in the fonts folder.
Just go to Font Settings in Control Panel and select the "Allow fonts to be installed using a shortcut (advanced)" checkbox. This will add a "Install as shortcut" item in the font right click.
You can have the font files in a separate folder and install as shortcuts. Just delete the shortcuts from Fonts folder once you are done.
