If you have a large collection of fonts (and most graphic designers do), keeping track of what you have, where it is, and what it looks like is a difficult job. Since it's not good for your computer to have huge numbers of fonts installed on a Windows-based system, if you're like me, you end up with a number of basic fonts actually installed inside Windows, with the larger amount collected inside folders on your hard drive(s) (but not installed) or on diskette or CD-ROMs. A font manager is a must. Font Xplorer is a good, solid font manager.

The user interface looks much like Windows Explorer, and allows you to easily browse and display both installed and uninstalled fonts. It allows you to load, install, unload, uninstall, and manage all your fonts; print font sample sheets and lists; save bitmaps of fonts; and look for duplicates, as well as many other tasks.

The demo version is free to try for 30 days. At $19.95 U.S., it's well worth the investment.
