If you’ve ever hunted around to try and find out what fonts you have on your Windows PC, you’ll know that it’s not that easy to do. Most of the time you’ll end up firing up a word-processor to see if you can put in a phrase and run through the font options from the top menu. It’s cumbersome and annoying.
Nexus Font is a cool little Windows utility which gives you a quick and easy way to audition your fonts with a custom phrase of your choosing. What’s really neat about this utility is the ability to also track down extended character sets (like foreign language letters and symbols) as well as dig into the ownership and copyright of font families. You can install and uninstall fonts, manage them in libraries and carry your favorite fonts around on a USB drive. There’s even an export as image function in there.
There are other tools in the Nexus suite of freeware programs which we also like, including a nice clean image viewer and a file manager which provides dual pane file control as well as a customizable interface. There’s some nice software there.
