Sorry to disagree with you, Midas, but I found this font viewer to be one of the most elementary and nearly worthless that I have ever seen. There are dozens and dozens of free font viewers out there and virtually all of them are better than this one. I just hope this one got the sixth grade student a passing grade in Introduction to Computer Programming.

You're welcome, shodan816 -- to each, her/his own...

I agree with Midas on this one. I just want a "viewer" and this one does exactly what I need it to do. When I want to review and select a font for a project, this one is quick and simple to use. I recently tried NexusFont and didn't like all the unnecessary functions and the clunky GUI. This one works for me.

WinFontsView v1.10

Checker on 22 Mar 2014

WinFontsView enumerates all fonts installed on your system, and displays them in one simple table. For each font, WinFontsView draws 5 samples of the font in different sizes, in order to allow you to easily find and choose the desired font that you need. The program also allows you to view the fonts as bold, italic, and with underline, as well as it allows you to export the fonts list in an HTML file.

WinFontsView also allows you to choose the right set for non-English characters in fonts and to type the characters displayed in the sample text.

Same with virtually everything Nir Sofer writes - FANTASTIC! I just replaced Nexus Font with this one. It's GRRRRRRRRREAT ! !

This does not let you view fonts in other directories or install and uninstall fonts like Nexus Font does though.

It needs and uses Internet Explorer, which is NOT portable. I'll have a serious look at this program if it can work with my browser of choice. I am now not al interested in it.

Meant: I am now not at all interested in it

Latest version still says 1.12.39 in the Help / About menu. And the .exe file is exactly the same size as 1.12.39. So has it even been updated?
