An application that adds or removes fonts from the Windows public font table should notify other windows of the change by sending a WM_FONTCHANGE message to all top-level windows in the system. The application sends this message by calling the SendMessage function with the hwnd parameter set to HWND_BROADCAST.

If there are outstanding references to a font, the associated resource remains loaded until no device context is using it.
