    Hidden fonts continue to display in applications

    I have hidden all of the foreign language fonts that are Windows 8.1 system fonts. However, the hidden fonts continue to display in Office 2010, Adobe Creative Cloud and Corel Draw X6, as well as other programs and applications.

    How do I prevent the fonts from displaying or better -- which ones can be deleted? Surely Windows will function in the U.S. without a Himalayan font loaded.

    I've tried using a third party font manager, both NexusFont and Bitstream Font Navigator, but with no improved results.

    Does anyone have suggestions or solutions?

    Thank you. Here is the link to the tutorial: Fonts - Delete - Windows 7 Help Forums

    If you are running 64 bit -- be sure to follow the instructions in Option 2, Step 6. I found the fonts I wanted to delete in the Registry Key for the 64 bit system and they deleted.
