In Windows, you can show or hide specific fonts as needed to avoid confusion. Here is how you can do it by following simple and easy steps.
Steps to hide fonts
You must use the Fonts folder in Control Panel to hide fonts. The new Fonts page in the PC Settings app doesn’t have an option to hide fonts you don’t want to see.
1. First, open the Control Panel by searching in the Start menu. If you added Control Panel to the Win+X menu, you can also use it to open it.
2. In the Control Panel window, set “View by” to “Large“. Next, click on the “Fonts” option. This action will open the Fonts folder.
3. In the Fonts folder, find and select the font you want to hide. You can select multiple fonts by holding down the Ctrl button. When you’re done selecting the font(s), click the “Hide” button that appears in the toolbar.
4. As soon as you do that, the font will fade out (become hidden).
It’s done! The fonts will be hidden from all programs, and you will no longer see them. However, they are not uninstalled. So if you want to show or unhide them, just select those hidden fonts and click the “Show” button.
Hide fonts based on language settings
If you have installed multiple languages and want to hide fonts that are not designed for the current language, you can also do that. The good thing about this method is that, depending on your current language, Windows will automatically hide and unhide the fonts for the other language.
1. Search for Control Panel in the Start menu. In the Control Panel window, set View By to “Large” and select the “Fonts” option.
2. In the Fonts folder, click the “Font Settings” link on the left panel.
3. Now, select the checkbox “Hide fonts based on language settings” and click the OK button.
From now on, Windows will automatically hide fonts that are not in the current language.
