Font Management Utility: Font management software is utility software that computer users use to browse and preview fonts and typically to install and uninstall fonts. In addition, depending on the individual font management program's capabilities, users can also

  • Activate and deactivate fonts (users can do this manually; sometimes programs will do this in conjunction with specific software, such as QuarkXPress or Adobe's InDesign)
  • Protect fonts that are required by the system by preventing them from being uninstalled
  • Organize fonts by groups and libraries
  • Find and uninstall corrupt fonts
  • Rename font files
  • View fonts that are not currently installed
  • Print font samples or font books illustrating some or all of the fonts on the system
  • Sort fonts according to different criteria
  • Search for fonts meeting specific criteria
