Weekend Widget: Font Frenzy

March 28, 2009

How many of you have too many fonts installed? Go ahead and admit it, we all do. The more you have installed, the more likely you are to have problems with Windows and with your software. You will also find your computer gets slower and slower.

In my Last Word in Font Management tutorial, I urge users to uninstall all those extra fonts and manage them properly with Bitstream Font Navigator. It is a process that I describe in even more detail in my CorelDRAW X4 Unleashed book. There has been one step that has troubled users for years and that is deleting all the excess fonts. Users didn’t back up their fonts first and they weren’t really sure which fonts were not used by Windows.

That leads us to today’s widget, Font Frenzy. I’ve provided a link to the full documentation because it also describes how the program is used. Don’t worry, you can read it all in less than five minutes. In short, Font Frenzy will remove all fonts that were not installed by Windows and safely put them where you can get to them later. Definitely a valuable tool and it is completely free! When used in conjunction with Bitstream Font Navigator, you have an easy way to keep your fonts under control.

    Font Frenzy sounds great but the site indicates that it is not available for download because the program is being updated.
