3 Ways To Uninstall Fonts in Windows 10

A font is a graphical representation of text that may have a different typeface, point size, weight, color, or design than the text itself.

In Windows 10, a font can be installed exclusively for your account (the current user) or all users on the computer.

Although Windows 10 comes with pre-installed fonts, you can also install fonts that you have generated or purchased/downloaded from the internet. Managing Fonts on Windows 10 is helpful; this post will show you how to delete fonts from Windows 10.

Installing fonts on Windows 10 is simple; double-click on the font file you made or downloaded. If you have installed these font files, you can uninstall them from the Font settings in Windows 10.

TrueType and OpenType fonts are installed by default in Windows 10. They have either TTF or OTF file extensions, and they are scalable and look great on current displays. OpenType is a more recent standard that can support any writing script and includes advanced typographic “layout” characteristics that dictate the positioning and replacement of produced glyphs.

With version 17083, Windows 10 has a new section in the Settings app. The new area, titled “Fonts,” is located under Personalization.

Instead of the traditional applet, the latest versions of Windows 10 have the Fonts page in Settings, displaying updated font features such as colored fonts or changeable fonts.

A dedicated Fonts settings page in Settings provides a brief glimpse of each font family. The previews make use of a variety of intriguing strings that are chosen to correspond to the critical languages for which each font family is developed, as well as your personal language choices. In addition, if a typeface has multi-color capabilities built-in, the preview will show this.

How to Uninstall Fonts in Windows 10

There are several techniques for uninstalling a typeface in Windows 10. Let’s go over them again.

1. Uninstalling/Deleting a Font in Windows 10

2. Using the Control Panel, uninstall and delete a font on Windows 10.

3. Uninstall a Font Installed from the Microsoft Store

Steps to Uninstall a Font in Windows 10

1. Launch the Settings app.

2. Go to Personalization > Fonts.

4. If the typeface comes with more than one font face, choose the one you want. Before proceeding, please read the Note.

5. Select the Uninstall option.

6. Verify the operation.

If you installed a font from the Store, uninstalling any of its font faces would erase all font faces for the typeface, regardless of which font face you chose.

Alternatively, you can use the Control Panel’s traditional Font applet.

How to uninstall a Font in Windows 10 with Control Panel

Apps will always use their default font as a fallback. If you change the default font in Microsoft Word and then uninstall it, it will revert to Cambria.

Things differ a lot when it comes to files. In the case of a file like a Word document, the file will likely do with a different, generally the default font.

Other sorts of files, such as a Photoshop file where the font is utilized within a layer, may result in an empty layer or a warning that the font is no longer available and the layer cannot be changed.

Some apps allow you always to embed a font within a file to be accessible even if you are reading it on a system that does not have the font installed. These apps are pretty uncommon.
