Installing Fonts in Windows

Installing OpenType or TrueType Fonts in Windows

Windows supports TrueType fonts or fonts that are specially designed for Windows, and these fonts are available commercially. Some programs also include special fonts that are installed as part of the program installation. Additionally, printers frequently come with TrueType or special Windows fonts. Follow the directions that come with these products to install these fonts.

To manually install or re-install a font:

1. Click Start, and then click Run.

2. Type %windir%\fonts, and then click OK.
3. On the File menu, click Install New Font.
4. In the Drives box, click the drive that has the floppy or CD-ROM that contains the fonts you want to add. If you are installing fonts from a floppy disk, this is typically drive A or drive B. If you are installing the fonts from a compact disc, your CD-ROM drive is typically drive D. Double-click the folder that contains the fonts.
5. Click the font you want to add. To select more than one font at a time, press and hold down the CTRL key while you click each font.
6. Click to select the Copy Fonts To Fonts Folder check box. The Windows\Fonts folder is where the fonts that are included with Windows are stored.
7. Click OK.

Removing Fonts

To completely remove fonts from the hard disk:

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. Type %windir%\fonts, and then click OK.
3. Click the font you want to remove. To select more than one font at a time, press and hold down the CTRL key while you click each font.
4. On the File menu, click Delete.
5. When you receive the "Are you sure you want to delete these fonts?" prompt, click Yes.

To prevent a font from loading without removing it from the hard disk, move the font from the Fonts folder into another folder. Use this method for troubleshooting purposes. This process does not completely remove the font, because font registry information is not deleted. However, it prevents the font from loading.
