What is your favorite font in the entire universe? So help me – don’t tell me it’s Comic Sans MS. Everyone has a favorite, even if it happens to be one that no one else likes. Did you know that there is a Lockergnome font? I used to feature several different fonts in the old days of the newsletter that I send out. Of course, that’s evolved over time, and now intersting links from across our community – as well as some great savings!

Ok, where were we? Oh yes – fonts! Do you know how many you have installed on your computer right now? I’m guessing there are more than you realize. When you uninstall a program, the font still hangs around. If you want a quick way to see how many there are – and to be able to browse them all – then check out the Font Picker.

This simple tool shows you all the fonts installed on your computer and helps you choose which one is most suitable for a particular project. Test out how your font will look right from within your browser. Get rid of the fonts that you don’t like by pressing the x next to them so you are left with a smaller list of fonts to choose from.

This is an easy way to see how many different fonts you have. It’s also a very easy way for you to choose just the right look for your next project or paper.
