The options to install, uninstall and manage fonts has not been changed in a Windows operating system since Windows 95. At least not in a remarkable way. The only solution so far was to rely on third party applications that would offer font previews and a comfortable solution to install and uninstall them. The fonts manager was overhauled in Windows 7 and provides a preview of every installed font of the computer system with the option to hide fonts based on language settings.
Each font can be previewed directly in the main fonts menu because three characters (abg) are displayed in the font’s icon. Multiple fonts of the same font family, say Courier New or Arial are stacked together and shown as the font family with information on the available font types shown in the same interface.
A preview of all fonts of a font family is available after double-clicking an icon. A click on a single-font will open a preview window of that font showing all of its characters in various sizes.
The new font manager is one of many small but very noticeable changes in Windows 7. This is definitely a welcome addition.
