Although several fonts come pre-installed on Windows and many more can be had from Microsoft Office and other word processing programs, sometimes the choices donít match our needs. Additional fonts can be downloaded individually from many different websites. After it has been downloaded, installing the new font on a Windows computer can be accomplished in a few different ways.

The first way to install fonts is to go to the Start menu. From the Start menu, open the Control Panel. If your Control Panel is in classic view mode, an icon named Fonts is available. If you are in the categorized view, click on Appearance and Themes or Appearance and Personalizations to get to the Font folder. In the menu on the right, or under the File menu on the top, an option may be available to install fonts. If no option is available, you may simply right click on the downloaded font, and choose copy. In the Fonts folder, right click in an empty space and click on paste. If you want to install multiple fonts, hold the Ctrl key to choose several fonts before right-clicking and choosing copy.

Many downloadable fonts come with a self-installing program. Sometimes you can simply double-click on the downloaded font and it will automatically install. If this doesnít work, sometimes you can right click on the font and an install option will be available on that menu.

If you are using Windows XP, you can install the font directly by going to the Start menu and choosing Run. In the dialogue box, enter %windir%\fonts. This will take you to the Font folder where you can go to File and choose Install New Font.
