Fonts, some people are real obsessive about them. It is their hobby to try and use different fonts for different tasks. Sometimes the list of installed fonts in their windows becomes so long that it becomes difficult for them also to remember the fonts and its characteristics.

If you are one among them, and find yourself struggling to select the best suitable font for your latest document among the installed fonts, then there is a useful utility, which allows you to easily list and view all the installed windows fonts in your machine.

Welcome to WinFontsView.

WinFontsView is a small utility from NorSoft, that 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. WinFontsView also allows you to view the fonts as Bold, as Italic or with underline, as well as it allows you to export the fonts list into html file.

If you need to find a font in non-English character set, WinFontsView also allows you to choose the right characters set of the fonts and to type the characters displayed in the sample text of each font.

WinFontsView doesn’t require any installation process or additional DLL files. In order to start using it, simply run the executable file – WinFontsView.exe. After running WinFontsView, the main window displays all ANSI fonts installed on your system. If you want to view fonts in non-English language, Go to Options->Advanced Options (or press F8), choose the desired character set and type the characters of your language to view in the sample text.

You can also choose to view the fonts as Bold (Ctrl+B), as Italic (Ctrl+I) or with underline (Ctrl+U). If you want to view the font samples in HTML, you can use the save option (Ctrl+S) or the HTML report options under the View menu. However, be aware that you cannot view the HTML file in another computer that these fonts are not installed.
