Windows 10: Windows 10 Required Fonts

    Windows 10 Required Fonts

    Does anyone know if there is a list of fonts that Windows 10 requires to display correctly?
    I'm currently sorting out my (thousands of) fonts, and don't want to delete anything that the system needs. (Or programs like Office 365 or Photoshop, for that matter.)
    If someone could point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it!

    Thanks in advance!

    A page to read:
    Fonts in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Support
    More at windows 10 required fonts at DuckDuckGo

    The subject does not seem quite as simple as it was back a few versions through to Windows 95.

    Thank you for replying so quickly. I did check out the links you posted, but the articles didn't really give me what I wanted, which was just a simple : "Don't delete this font, or you'll stuff up your windows display". Thanks for trying to help, though.

    The easiest way I use is to get a printed list of the Fonts Folder immediately after a new install of Windows, before any programs are installed but third-party publishers including Microsoft's applications. There was a small directory printer program that did it easily but don't know if it works on Win10, the publisher died some time back.
