    How Do I delete fonts in Windows 7


    Does anyone know how I can delete certain fonts. Im using Windows 7 and the fonts are in my Paint SHop Pro font list (they are the Windows 7 fonts) they automatically show in Paint Shop Pro. I have added a few fonts using the Windows Font Viewer but cant find out how to delete and I dont want to get too many in there. Thanks for any help. Sandie

    Go to:
    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Fonts

    Select the ones you don't want & use 'Delete' to delete those ones.
    Take Care

    Before you delete any, I'd take the precaution of backing up your Fonts folder first, just in case you delete one used by Windows.

    In Start/Search or RUN box - Shell:fonts > hit Enter

    Good advice. That's what a prudent man would do.

    Thanks all, yes I realized I should do that, one good thing was when I tried to delete one font, a message popped up saying why I s houldnt. It was just a few fonts I had added myself I wanted to delete. Thanks again for quick responses.
