    Default Remove Extra Fonts in Windows 8

    Hi guys,

    I want to speed up the boot time of my windows 8 operating system. And I know that removing the extra fonts of Win 8 is a way to it, because those are useless to me. But I do not know how to uninstall them.

    Pls advise!

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi

    So much has change in Windows 8, however Windows is still Windows,

    I had an issue removing unwanted fonts from the system, after following instruction through Windows only to find that there are simply now so many more feature that do not work. perfect world and all of that.....

    Be warned, you break the registry you break PC, you are to blame no one else. So please be careful.

    just in case Microsoft kb 322756

    To remove Fonts that do not go after deleting them in via Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Fonts

    Press "Windows Key"
    type: Regedit
    When prompted/if Prompted select "Yes"

    Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\ Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts (This is Windows 8 64bit)
    Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts (This is Windows 8 32bit)

    Export the key, right click on Font and left on export, give it a name and save. (This is backup)
    Then select the fonts you want to remove on the right hand side and simply press "Del"

    font will now be gone,

    Good Luck
