    The Font Thing - similar?


    For a decade or two on my XP PC (and maybe earlier) the program The Font Thing frequently proved very handy. But it was apparently 16-bit and sadly I can't run it on my Win 10 Pro PC.

    Anyone able to recommend a similar 32 or 64 bit tool they've found useful please?
