    I have asked this question before, but never received a sensible response (not on this forum). My question is this: Does anyone know why Win 7 is loaded down with vast quantities of utterly useless and unwanted and space occupying foreign fonts?
    I need maybe a dozen or so fonts, which is quite ample for my needs, but is it possible to dump the unwanted remainder from my computer?
    Any useful information most welcome.
    Thanks

    Type shell:fonts into the start/search field and hit Enter. Then you get the fonts folder where you can delete any font you like.

    I personally think it is not worth the effort. The fonts folder takes less than 400MB on the disk.
