I have been using a retail version font manager program for some time. I am not sure how I did without out one for so long. I use a lot of fonts when doing any kind of digital designing.
I accidentally installed too many fonts and it has ground my some of my programs to a halt. OUtlook and Photoshop are a mess.
In trying to figure out ways to restore my original windows font folder I stumbled across a very good, free Font manager called Font Thing. It is easy to use and free.
It is an older program but does the job very well.
