Did you know you can delete fonts on your computer? Makes it so much easier to find a font when you’re only looking through fonts you like!
It’s Tech Tuesday—if you’re not a blogger, feel free to pass it on by! Or give it a read to learn all of our deep, dark blogging secrets.
Did you know you can delete fonts? I learned that recently and it was a total game-changer for me. I do a lot of design work and I’ve always hated sorting through all of my fonts. I mean, am I ever going to use that Chinese font? Nope!
If you are tired of scrolling past fonts you’ll never use, start deleting!
On a Mac, you can delete fonts using the FontBook application. On a PC, open Fonts by clicking Start > Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Fonts. (Your operating system may not allow you to delete every font you want to delete, but you can get rid of most of them.)
I deleted every non-English font I could. I also deleted others that I didn’t like (bye, Comic Sans and Felt Marker!). I only kept the ones I like and that I know I’ll use. It makes choosing fonts for design projects so much easier!
If you want to add great new fonts to your collection, I particularly love My Design Deals. They often have bundles of fonts at incredible prices. Creative Market is another wonderful resource. Free font sites include Font Squirrel and DaFont.
