Which fonts can be deleted ?

  timothywilliam 20:01 09 Apr 2003

I have decided I have far too many fonts on my Windows 95 computer and I want to delete some of them.
I have read somewhere it is not wise to delete some fonts but how do I know what to delete and what not to ?

Don't delete any of the fonts with a red A icon, and of the remainder, the TT fonts, leave in Arial, Courier, Times New Roman and Verdana since they are commonly used within Windows and by many apps. Also don't dlete the Marlett font which is a system essential, or the Symbol fonts.

However, you can delete some of the more extreme forms of those, for example Narrow Bold Italic, which isn't very legible in any font.

I run several systems with only the above fonts and have no problems.

Go to Control Panel double click on fonts icon write down all the red fonts, open explorer create a new folder in explore drag the fonts you do not want to the folder instead of deleting leave the fonts you put on paper if you have any problem after you can reinstall by just dragging them back into the fonts folder. if all's well after a while then delete the font's left in the folder you created
