Hey Guys!
I was just wondering wether there was this kind of fond manager out there? The thing is I bought an external hard drive and I would like to manage some fonts I download onto it. The thing is I also install software on that drive and would like to be able to use the fonts on those software...

Thanks!

But how do I make it so I can use my fonts in all the applications I have on my drive?

To install a font:
1. Open Control Panel.
2. Click Appearance and Personalization.
3. Click Fonts.
4. Either:
 A. Drag the font you want to install to the folder.
 B.
  1. Right click in the blank white space of the folder.
  2. Click "Install New Font..."
  3. Browse to the font to install and click install.

I'm not sure that is possible. Why do you want to install Fonts on your external hard drive?

Edit: According to the post at http://www.proximasoftware.com.....c.php?t=13 you can use the software FontExpert to use Fonts on an external hard drive.
