Fix Windows Font Errors – Speedup Computer Performance
Windows Font Missing is a common error most people find while trying to run a software application or trying to print a document. Errors like these could be slowing down your computer performance drastically as Windows searches for this missing font file giving you troubles like computer freezes or crashes if the file has gone missing or has got uninstalled with some third party software.
Why is Font Errors Happening & How it Affects Computer Performance ?
Windows operating system comes pre-loaded with over 450 font files. In you life time you may just about use five or ten fonts. Most people use just one font file which is the default in the programs they use. Even graphics artists rarely use even 20 different fonts out of this huge font collection. In addition each software you install into your computer also adds fonts into the Windows Font folder. Thus the number of fonts in some computers loaded with third party software and big graphics software like photoshop, microsoft office etc will have even over 1000 font files. Some software overwrite the existing font files Windows requires with an incorrect font file with errors in it which cannot be loaded into the memory for use by Windows. Also trying to load huge font files during a software startup could eat up a lot of RAM or memory which makes the availability of RAM for other software applications to load much lesser thus compromising the speed of your computer performance.
Uninstall Unwanted Fonts to Speedup Computer Performance
When your computer starts up it loads a lot of fonts into the RAM or Random Access Memory. When you load a photo editor or word processor or any such application, these software loads another hundreds of fonts into the memory which may be available for use only in that specific software which is in addition to those Windows fonts already in the memory. On the left you see a few font files in Windows 7. To view font files go to the folder in C:\Windows\Fonts and double click on any font file. You will be amazed at all the hundreds of fonts installed in your PC. To prevent these fonts from loading into memory when you do not want to use them will increase your computer speed. Just copy and paste the Fonts from the C:\Windows Font Folder to any other location or a CD or USB. Once you have backed up the font files you may delete them. Windows will not let you delete a few fonts which it requires and those which are already loaded into the memory and the fonts already being used by any software application which is running at that time. If you want to use a file later then just copy the font file back into the C:\Windows\fonts folder. But it makes a lot of sense to do this. In case you get any Windows font errors then just copy only that particular font back into the Windows Font folder. Once you restart your computer after deleting unwanted fonts you will feel your computer performance speed has increased.
Can Font Error During Print Affect Computer Speed ?
Not really. Your computer may not freeze up due to a missing font error. But your computer may slow down because it goes into a confused state when a required font is not found. The font is usually required to render a document or by the printer to which the software sends a document for print. This is because software like pdf files also send post script fonts. If the post script fonts option is not enabled in the printer settings then you may find that your printer is not able to print the document and Windows Font Error missing or post script font error message may come and your computer may stop responding in some cases. The best action is to open the printer properties and navigate to your Printer Advanced settings tab and enable Post Script Pass Through Option. When the error is removed your Computer Performance should increase.
Powerpoint Presentation Font Error and Computer Speed
Do you get Invalid Font Windows Error Message in Powerpoint when you try to run a powerpoint presentation made on one computer on another computer? This is because you have used a font in the presentation from the computer where you made your powerpoint presentation and then try to run the presentation on another computer where that particular font is not available. This gives Windows Font Error message and your computer may slow down. The solution is to either save the font also along with the powerpoint presentation as the facility exists or you should carry the font separately on a CD DVD or download the font and copy (install) font into the C:\Windows\Font folder in the other computer so that the powerpoint presentation can run with the font you choose and keeping your computer performance at its peak level without any problem. The new Windows operating system however has the capability to use the default font of that computer to replace the font which is not available in that computer. But I still recommend that you check your computer for font errors and fix them as soon as possible.
