WinFontsView v1.10 Updated

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?

See all

Uh, this program looks REALLY ugly!

Ollie on 2010-07-15 10:45

How do I extract to a folder of my choice? The installer isn't an archive (not recognised by 7-zip as one, anyway), and doesn't give me the option to choose the install folder.

FontView v1.1

Andrew Lee on 12 Feb 2013

There are two programs within the package. FontView displays all installed fonts in one window, which makes it easier to compare fonts and delete those that are similar. CharMap shows all characters in a font and copy characters to the clipboard, with the ability to increase the size of the characters displayed, something which the native Windows CharMap utility cannot do.
