Is it possible to change the Font directory
Posted on 2008-11-14
My hard drive is partitioned into 2 drives. One drive (C:) has Windows and Programs installed on it while the other drive (M:) is used to store my files. I have created an image of drive C: with Windows and all my Software set up the way i want it.
I do a lot of graphic work and i get (and install) a lot of new fonts everyday. I have all of these fonts saved on my M: drive however when i wipe my laptop and re-image the C: drive i am missing all my fonts. I have to install all of them again by copying them into C:\WINDOWS\Fonts directory.
Is there a way that i can set up windows to use a different directory (on my M: drive) instead of C:\WINDOWS\Fonts.
(note: it might be tricky as when you copy new fonts into C:\WINDOWS\Fonts, the fonts don't just copy to the folder, they also seem to install)
thanks in advance
