How do I install my fonts on a Windows PC?

Uncompress the downloaded .zip file so you can access the font files.

You can copy and paste your fonts into the system’s Fonts folder on any Windows system (Win XP to Win 8). It installs your fonts at once. In order to access the newly installed fonts you have to re-start any application you’ve been using.


Windows 7 – 10

Installing your fonts is simple on a Windows 7 – 10 operating system. Navigate to the folder containing the fonts and select any you wish to install. Right-click and select ‘Install’ or ‘Install as shortcut’ from the fly-out menu. In order to access the newly installed fonts, you have to re-start any application you’ve been using.

‘Install’ will create a copy of the selected fonts in the system’s Fonts folder. ‘Install as shortcut’ will create a link to your files and you can access them as long as they remain in the same folder. This saves some space on your hard drive.


Windows XP

From the Start menu, select the Control Panel and double-click on the Fonts folder icon. Here, select ‘Install New Font’ from the File menu and navigate to the folder containing the fonts. Once there, the fonts appear in the ‘List of Fonts’ field. Select any you wish to install, making sure the ‘Copy Fonts to Fonts Folder’ box is checked and press ‘OK’. In order to access the newly installed fonts you have to re-start any application you’ve been using.
