Favourite Microsoft system fonts


Hello everyone, I'm new here at Typophile.

Microsoft products (MS Windows & MS Office) come with a variety of serif fonts. If you were limited to use Microsoft serif fonts only (for printed text), which would be your favourites to use?

I like Century Schoolbook, Goudy Old Style and Book Antiqua (Palatino Linotype has a wider line spacing by default).

Thank you.

File Management

I'm organizing all the JPEGs I have of old type, adding tags as I go. The function that I'm trying to achieve is that through the filter function of Bridge be able to sort out the documents that contain the specific letters that I need so that I later can bring them into Illustrator and vectorize them.

To clarify, here is an example: Let's say I have a bunch of old woodtype samples, and I got the word Entertainment in one file and the word Literacy in another and Kong in the third. I need letters for the word ELK, and ointment. My current system is as follows that each tag is just for one letter. I.e E, n, t, e, r, a, i, m, (since Entertainment contains duplicates) and I've done this across all files.
