Windows Font Viewers [Free]
By on October 29th, 2008

How many fonts are installed on your computer? And do you know how each font looks like? Well not many can answer the above two questions in affirmative as Windows lacks a default font viewer that will allow you to browse and view the fonts installed on your system.

    The font viewer looks good but I do not want to search in founts I do not like and Windows will not let me delete the fonts I do not like and I would need to install many more one at a time.
    Ive been looking on the web all morning and I can not find a viewer I like.
    What a good one need is….
    1 a installer
    2 It lets you choose the fonts in its directory
    3 Everything in one package no second download or it needs this or that with it.
    4 a good previewer and main viewer. you need to see the style in the preview.
    Well that’s my 2 cents if its worth 2 cents
