Fonts are essential when it comes to displaying text in the Windows operating system. No matter if we are talking about desktop icons or Microsoft Word documents, they all use fonts for displaying text. In case you want to manage and organize your font collection and add new ones, you will be disappointed by the fact that the Windows Fonts tool is very limited in features and doesn't allow you to efficiently organize fonts.

Fortunately, there are additional applications for this purpose available on the market. One of them is MainType. This Windows application allows you to manage all your fonts and install new ones with ease.

After the program is launched for the first time, it will scan for installed fonts. After the scanning process is complete, the user will be able to view the list of fonts in the main interface of the application and also see a preview for each of them. Thus, he will know what font should be removed.

MainType allows you to easily install new fonts and remove existing ones with a single mouse click. When removing an existing font, all the references regarding it will be removed from the registry and Windows folder.

What's more, MainType includes a tool for fixing registry keys and system files which belong to fonts. Thus, your operating system will run more stable and even faster. Another useful feature included in MainType is the possibility of using various plugins, which can extend the program's functionality and can make it compatible with different font types, like Adobe ones.


It can automatically detect all the fonts installed into the operating system and allows you to install new ones with ease. Besides that, when removing fonts, it can fully remove all the registry keys and files which are associated with them. Furthermore, it can display a preview of each selected font. Moreover, it supports various plugins.


It doesn't have an option for finding fonts on the Web. Using MainType, you can efficiently manage and organize all your installed fonts.
