Remove Excess Fonts

Windows 95 comes with a number of built-in fonts that are installed automatically when you load the operating system onto your hard disk. In addition, there are literally thousands of add-in fonts that you can purchase, or that you may get free with software. Some people tend to accumulate these because they use them a great deal in their work, or just because having lots of them is fun.

This is fine, but you do not want to overdo it. If you end up with several hundred different fonts on your system, this can negatively impact performance. If so, try deleting a bunch of them (use the "Fonts" icon in the Control Panel) to see if performance improves. Make sure that you have the original source of the fonts in case you need them again later on.
