I have windows ME and want to clean out my large fonts folder. I have very many I don't use and don't like the look of. I understand that there are fonts which have to be left alone and can not removed. Can you please give me that list for ME? Thanks.

You need to purchase the font 4 teachers cd Here are the instructions for installing the software.

Start Windows Insert the Fonts4teachers CD-ROM into your computer

From the Start menu, click Settings-Control Panel See Picture 1 (a,b,c)

Double-click on the Fonts folder icon to open it See Picture 2

On the File menu, click Install New Font See Picture 3 (If the Install New Font option located in the File menu of the Fonts folder is missing (Windows Me and Windows 2000), please refer to the Troubleshooting section, on page 31)

Select the drive from the Drives: menu Click the drive where your CD-ROM resides (Drive "c:" is always the hard drive; Drive "a:" is always the floppy diskette None of these drives are the CD-ROM drive If you are not sure which one is your CD-ROM drive, try first Drive "d:"; later on Drive "e:", and so on, until you find the drive where your CD-ROM resides) See Picture 4 (a)

In Folders:, double-click the fonts4teachers folder See Picture 4 (b) Now you will see a list of 31 fonts under the List of fonts: See Picture 4 (c) (Be sure that you REALLY double-click on the fonts4teachers folder and that you WAIT a few seconds until the computer retrieves all the fonts The first one is called "Abc Alegria")

In List of fonts:, click the font you want to add To add all of the listed fonts, click Select All, and then click OK See Picture 4 (d,e)

Close the window See Picture 4 (f)

Remove the Fonts4teachers CD-ROM.
