Here's a great piece of Windows freeware that makes it easy to browse through the installed fonts on your computer, so you know what's available to you for use in all your Windows applications. You can, of course, just use the font selection menu in any application, but these are often cumbersome and they don't let you choose the sample text content.
The program is called FontViewOK, and you'll find the download link at http://www.softwareok.com/?Download=FontViewOK. The program is portable and thus needs no installation, and the download is less than 0.1 MB. It's malware-free according to VirusTotal and Web of Trust.
Note: Make sure you click on the blue download links on the page, and not the large green Download button, which is actually an advert for a different product entirely.
FontView is easy to use. Just run the program you download, and some sample text in all of your installed fonts will be shown straight away. You can change the text size, and the sample text. It even shows you the filename of the font data file, so it's easy to uninstall fonts that you don't want to keep.
