Is there some concise and accurate list of fonts that are required (not just 'supplied with')  by Windows 7?  Over time I've downloaded many that I no longer want or need but I certainly don't want to delete anything that's necessary.  I've looked at many places on the internet but the lists I find don't always agree with each other so I'm reluctant to do anything.

You can restore the default font and remove any changes that you've made to your display settings from Appearance and Personalization.


Here’s how:


1.    Open Fonts by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Fonts.

2.    In the left pane, click Font settings.

3.    Click Restore default font settings.




This also removes all manual changes that you've made to your display settings.


I've listed couple of links that could be of assistance to you.

According to advice here under a user name that was well regarded, Marlett and Segoe UI are used by the system so will be essential:


Fonts that are always expected by everything else (the fonts common to all Windows versions, hence "browser safe" etc) and that Windows will therefore look for as a fallback substitute for fonts that are not present are listed here:


If one of these fonts is not installed on an occasion when it should be there to serve as the fallback, things can look a bit odd.
