How do I install fonts in Windows?

To use a font in Word or any other application, you must first download and install it in Windows, after which it will be available in all Office applications. You might need it for various things like designing, editing etc. Some applications allow you to download their own fonts.

Fonts are stored as files, and there are many websites, such as DaFont, where you can download free fonts. Font files can also be imported from CD, DVD, or your corporate network. Both TrueType (.ttf) and OpenType (.otf) fonts are compatible. Make sure you trust the source before downloading a font.

Add and install a font

1. Download the font files. These are often compressed in .Zip *: French Records. In a .zip folder, you can find several variations of the same font, such as “light” and “heavy”. A .zip folder usually looks like this:

2. If the font files are compressed, right-click the .zip folder and select Extract from the menu. You will now see the True type and Open type available font files:

The list of fonts in the unzipped file.

3. Right-click the desired fonts, and then click To install.

Right-click the font, and then click Install.

4. If you are prompted to allow the program to make changes to your computer, click Yes if you trust the source of the font.

5. Your new fonts will appear in the font list in Word or any other office application.

There are two other options for installing and managing fonts

1. All fonts are stored in the C: Windows Fonts case. You can also drag the font files from the Extracted Files folder to this folder to add fonts. They will be installed automatically by Windows. To see what a font looks like, go to the Fonts folder, right-click the font file, and select Preview from the menu.

Your new font now appears in the list of fonts in Word.

2. Another way to view your installed fonts is to use the Control Panel. In Windows 7 and Windows 10, go to Control Panel> Fonts. In Windows 8.1 or higher, go to Control Panel> Appearance and Personalization> Fonts.
