another font question

by Marie Boyer / June 17, 2005 9:29 PM PDT

To figure out what font I want to use, I go to my fonts folder and click on them individually, or I view them individually in my application.

Is there a way to print a summary illustration of all fonts on my computer so I can have a quick reference? Or a site that offers that kind of quick visual reference?

p.s. I have XP Pro, and I have downloaded extra fonts -- thanks to the "how to" advice on this forum.

p.s.s. I searched the cnet forums before asking this question, and I did not find anything.

Thanks in advance!

There are many freeware and shareware font viewers out there. Some of these just let you view all the fonts installed on your system, some of them also let you print samples of the fonts. I would not attempt to select one for you, because what you desire might not be what I would want. You must check them out yourself. As the shareware utilities ley you try them out for free, you can shop around for what best suits your needs.

Go to various download sites, such as Cnet's own, (click on downloads tab),,, or any other you like. Search for ''font viewers,'' and examine their capabilities. Select and download those that seem appropriate, and try them out. Keep, and pay for, whichever best suits your needs.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
