When you install a new program, it usually comes with its own fonts. For example, when you install Microsoft Office, it has its own fonts. If you search the Web, you will find numerous sites that offer several other fancy fonts, some available for free and some for a small charge.

When you find a new font you want to try, you need to know how to install it. As you can see from the steps listed below, the process is very simple. Before you proceed make sure you close all programs.

  1. Download and unzip the new font.
  2. Click the Start button, type font, and click Fonts. The Fonts window will appear.
  3. Drag the new font file into the Fonts window.

That’s all there is to it. Once you drag the font file into the Fonts window, it is automatically installed.
