Let’s admit, there are times when we all have wanted to remove specific fonts from our computer. Maybe you don’t like the particular font to appear every time on your Photoshop font panel, or you think that specific font is raising some copyright issues.
If you have been using Windows 10 for a while, you might know that the operating system doesn’t provide any direct method to delete the font files. Every time you install a font on your computer, it gets installed on the default drive and doesn’t appear on the Control Panel.
Also, Microsoft’s Windows 10 supports only desktop fonts and not webfonts. So, if you want to uninstall fonts from the operating system, you need to find and remove them manually.
