Fonts are a lovely way to dress up any project or document. But Fonts, especially TrueType fonts, can use quite a bit of system resources. So if you need to speed up Windows and don't mind losing some of the excess font-tage... consider trimming down your fonts to the ones you actually need.
To do this, just:
1. Open the Control Panel
2. Then Open the Fonts folder
3. Select and move fonts you don't need to a separate directory or folder. Do not delete them.
4. Reboot your machine.
You should now have a faster booting system. Now remember only remove the fonts you don't need and don't delete the ones you have removed. That way if you need a particular font or fonts returned... you can just drag them back in.
