Using Win ME.

Trying to do some cleaning out of unused files on the computer and when I tried to delete a font (called Marlett) it would not let me delete it. I also tried to do it in safe mode, but again, it said that I was "not allowed" to delete it.

I know I can probably delete it in DOS mode, but now I'm wondering why it is giving me this error warning. It is acting like I am trying to delete a system file.

Does Windows need certain fonts to work properly? Why won't it allow me to delete a simple font :confused:

:) Hello WC,

Marlett
Marlett is a special font made by Microsoft to enable the whole Windows interface to scale to different sizes. Windows 95 and later use Marlett to generate icons for maximize, minimize, close window, and many others, expanding and contracting them to fill the space allowed by the current interface settings. Marlett only exists as a TrueType font, Microsoft using that technology to perfect the bitmap images at each size.


I think I'd leave it alone. :D :D


Take care.
