Cleaning the Gimp
Hello Everyone,

I would like to clean up my gimp. I want to get rid of all the fonts and brushes that I have previously downloaded. Is there a way to do this without having to reinstall gimp? (I do not remember which fonts are the default and which ones are not.) Thank you for your help.

RE: Cleaning the Gimp
If you installed things properly (ie, all the added stuff in your own Gimp profile) then it's only a matter of navigating the directories and erasing things you don't need. If you added stuff in the Gimp installation directories (C:\Program Files\Gimp...) then either you have a very good memory, or you check the creation time (which is not the usual "last modification time") of the files in the files properties (from memory you can ask the file explorer to display it in the "Details" view, and you can then also sort files on it). All the files installed with Gimp will have more or less the same creation time (which is when you installed Gimp), you additional stuff will likely have a later time stamp.
