Everyone loves to spice up a text document (or an email) by using a different font. Most people have a lot more fonts installed on their computer than they will ever use. Can you have too many fonts? Absolutely. Here’s why:

If you have too many fonts, you might find one day that you try to install a new one, and the computer won’t let you. This is usually when you have several hundred (or maybe close to a thousand) installed fonts.
2. Practically speaking, if you are creating a Word document and want to use some different kind of font, do you really want to scroll through 500 fonts to choose one?
So, the point is, don’t just go installing fonts all the time unless there is a chance that you will actually use them.
