How to reset default fonts on Mac

If you are stuck with a Mac where the fonts do not work properly, it is easy to restore them to their default state using the built-in macOS Font Book application. See how you can do it.

What does font recovery do?

Since it is not possible to uninstall system fonts on a Mac, Font Reset does not install anything as one would expect. Instead, it uninstalls all the "non-standard" fonts you have installed on your system. As "non-formal", the Apple indicates any font that is not shipped with macOS by default.

Once uninstalled from the Font Book application, you will find the non-standard fonts found in either / Library / Fonts (Removed) or ~ / Library / Fonts (Removed).
