So what are we using nowadays to manage fonts on Windows 10?
Need something to mainly preview installed and uninstalled sets..

suggestions?

No idea really. I can tell you the old free version of Linotype Font Explorer does not work in Windows 10. I am not aware of any current free font management software for Windows.

Are you using InDesign? If so just put the needed fonts in the Document Fonts folder that should be located in the same folder as the InDesign document.
