Windows 7: Fonts manager?

Fonts manager?

Hi, I would like to remove or temporarily disable fonts that I do not use.

There used to be a program that backed them up, but seems to be no longer available.

I would like to be able to activate some of them. But would like to not have them all load at windows start, and in things like Gimp.

Anyone know of a utility that works in Windows 7?

Thanks.

Hello Coldout,

In addition, you might see if this tutorial and the related links (at top) in it may help.

Great, that's just what I'm after doing. Sorry, I did search the forums for "fonts" but didn't see that guide.
The Amp Font Viewer seems to be just a viewer and installer. So the guide will fit my needs perfectly, thank you.

Edit, Just hid all the fonts I didn't want, and now Gimp loads in about a second instead of the 15-20 it was before. Nice, exactly what I was after
