It's getting tougher and tougher to know which fonts aren't necessary. Many programs need specific fonts, and without those fonts the programs either won't run, or will run with crippled functions. The first thing to do is look at your Windows Display Settings Appearance tab, Advanced button, and check all of the "items" in the drop down menu that use fonts, and make sure to note which fonts Windows is using. Then at least you'll be sure that the fonts you're deleting probably aren't needed by Windows itself. To be on the safe side, using Windows Explorer create a new folder for storing copies of the fonts that you're deleting. Before deleting a font in the Fonts window, right click it, select copy, and using Windows Explorer paste into the folder that you created. That way if you need to get the font back: While in the Fonts window, click the File menu, then click Install new font, and direct the path of the resulting dialog box to where you copied the fonts that you deleted.
