I'm not so sure. I have over 2000, that's not a typo, fonts in C:\windows\fonts folder and the system seems to be running fine. The machine is a 2.8GHZ w/ 4GB RAM & SATA 300 250GB HDD.Rodney said:Do you know how many it woud take to start slowing your computer down?
This is exactly how to do it!!! I have no more than 400 active fonts and thats probably too many. If I add ten new fonts, I remove ten old fonts. I have a bunch zipped in a font folder categorized. When I do events I have a font catalog for folks to choose from with no more than maybe twenty.Fluid said:Actually its is best to save your fonts in a custom folder. Archive the various fonts into subfolders like, Serric, Gothic, Retro and so on. When you need one just install from the folder. when you dont need it anymore remove it. If you keep too many fonts installed in your C:/Windows/Fonts foler it will drastically slow your computer down.
Get a font management program. It will make your life easier and managing fonts easy as cake.
PC - Bitstream Font Navigator is a good one.
