How to Remove Duplicate Fonts


A computer font is a complete character set of a particular typeface. Windows has a specially designed folder where all computer fonts are stored. Sometimes you can duplicate a font by placing the same file in the font folder. In this instance, the duplicate can be removed from the computer.

  • Click on "Start" and select "My Computer" (Windows XP) or "Computer" (on Windows Vista).

  • Double-click on "Local Disk (C:)."

  • Double-click on "Windows" and then on "Fonts." A list of all installed fonts will open.

  • Right-click on the duplicate font installation and select "Delete." A duplicate font will have a "[1]" after its name. For example, you will see a file named "Garamond" and "Garamond[1]." In this instance you would right-click on "Garamond[1]" and select "Delete."
