Windows XP: Font Properties Extension

If you right-click on any font in Windows you will get some basic information about that font. Although if you want more detailed information Microsoft offers the Font Properties Extension that displays information such as the font origination and copyright, the type sizes to which hinting and smoothing are applied, and the code pages supported by extended character sets.

To install the program download it from the web page, then run it, and follow the prompts.

All you have to do is open the Fonts folder (in the Control Panel folder), then right-click on the font (TrueType or OpenType) you want to get information about, and select Properties. A font dialog will display with a lot of extra tabs.
