There are times when we would like to remove certain fonts from our computer. Maybe you don’t like the fact that a particular font appears every time in Photoshop’s Font panel, or you think that this particular font is causing some copyright issues.
If you have been using Windows 10 for a while, you may be aware that the operating system does not provide a direct method for deleting font files. Every time you install a font on your computer, it is installed on the drive by default and does not appear in the control panel.
Also, Windows 10 from Microsoft only supports desktop fonts, not web fonts. So, if you want to remove fonts from Windows 10 operating system, you need to find and remove them manually. In this article, we will share two best methods to remove fonts from Windows 10 operating system.
