Apparently I have 270 fonts installed on my PC. I'm sure I don't need all of them, and I really should get around to uninstalling ones that I don't use. The reason that I know I have 270 fonts is because of a handy program called Print My Fonts. It's the same program I intend to use to reduce that number. It's a handy, free, portable utility that lists all your fonts. You can then choose a sample sentence (the default, as shown below, refers to Anton eating cheese, for some weird reason). You can also choose which fonts to print, and you can opt to have it generate an image file or a Word document if you'd rather.
When you try the program, note that the default action is to send the output straight to your printer. So if you've got a lot of fonts, you'll want to select just a handful to start with, or choose the image option rather than the default printer.
As a way to help organize your PC fonts, Print My Fonts is very handy. It's free and portable, as mentioned, and the program is malware-free according to VirusTotal and Web of Trust. Head to http://www.sttmedia.com/printmyfonts to download it. And because it's portable, there's nothing to install. Just download and unzip it, click on the .EXE file to run it, and delete it again if it's not for you.
