    Deleting fonts


    Is there a way to delete a font in windows 10 build 9860? I used to delete fonts in win8 and win 10( previous build) by right clicking and delete but the new build will not allow to do that.

    Well, I just went into the font folder and it allows me to delete a font?
    I just right clicked on the font and there is a delete link in the drop down menu.
    Having said that, I did notice a couple that appear to have the shield symbol
    and they wouldn't allow deletion.

    I couldn't delete any of them whether it has the security shield symbol or not, tried to change the security settings to allow permission but they all greyed out, never mind, it's only a Preview and hope it's not permanent.

    Some Fonts are required by the system, probably is why they can't be deleted.

    I removed the Asian and Cherokee files in Windows 7 via Regedit. Is there an easier, safer way?
    Supposedly ControlPanel>Fonts lets user delete garbage fonts. But ALL get declared "protected system font".
    Even *.fon files are protected, though not needed since Win3.1.
