    -A- You can search for portable apps or tiny apps. Maybe some1 can lead me to
    freeware that requires no installation?
    Reason?
    Some of us use a computer @ the library or @ a pal's place & both frequently
    do not allow installation, even when it could be deleted / uninstalled within
    72 hours.
    Note: Waveosaur claims to require no installation.

    -B- I like trying free fonts. Is there a place where I can download dozens at
    once , maybe a . zip file , instead of 1 @ a time?
    -B2- Does open type font = true type font?
    -B3- How can you see if a font can be embedded?

    -C- The snipping tool in Windows 7 is helpful. Can it be installed
    in XP? Any freeware ( preferred ) or software similar to it?

    Thanks for ==any== leads.

    let me install programs once in a while.

    A - Portableapps.com is the first place you need to look. Hundreds of portable apps and games. Liberkey is another one although it doesn't get updated much these days.

    B- Not sure about that one, maybe someone else knows some good sites...

    C - I don't think you can install the Windows 7 snipping tool in XP, but this is a close copy:

    Plenty of free tools around that take screenshots, including Shotty, Greenshot, Lightshot, Pick Pick and ShareX.
