GeneralA method for removing non-Latin Fonts from Win7 Pin
BillWoodruff23-May-12 1:35
memberBillWoodruff23-May-12 1:35 
I debated whether this should be posted here, or as a "Tip/Trick:" but since this is not my own work, and does constitute a "free solution" ... for those who are bothered by the vast megabytes of non-Roman fonts installed by Windows and Adobe Apps which are not possible to delete by normal methods ... Here it be:

This is an article titled: "How to remove Windows 7 non-latin fonts"[^], on a blog by Martin Ihde, named ""

He has downloadable .bat files ... one for English Win 7, one for German Win 7 ... which, if you carefully follow his instructions, will remove non-Latin fonts, from the typical C:/Windows/Fonts folder where they are stored,(and are not deletable, or movable, even when you are running as admin), and re-locate them to a new directory you create. Once moved: you can delete these fonts, if you wish.

Warning: if you are using non-Latin fonts, that are not covered by the list of fonts in the author's .bat files: you are, obviously, going to have to parse his .bat files, and add their names to remove them. The fonts removed are backed-up into a folder in his method, so you do have the opportunity to restore this.

And, please be sure you carefully consider the author's warnings in the article !

Also note that these instructions are written for a user of Win7 who knows how to open and use the Cmd.exe window with Admin privileges: if that sounds "alien" to you, I suggest you not mess around with this solution.

I just deleted 100 megabytes worth of Fonts I will never use: suddenly I feel light-headed Smile | :)

best, Bill
"Humans are amphibians ... half spirit and half animal ... as spirits they belong to the eternal world, but as animals they inhabit time. This means that while their spirit can be directed to an eternal object, their bodies, passions, and imaginations are in continual change, for to be in time, means to change. Their nearest approach to constancy, therefore, is undulation: the repeated return to a level from which they repeatedly fall back, a series of troughs and peaks.” C.S. Lewis
