Installing Fonts On Windows

Updated by Eko Spt

How to install fonts in Windows

To install the font follow these simple steps:

  • Unpack the zip folder that you downloaded.
  • Go to the folder with the fonts and search for the .OTF or .TTF file (we recommend you always install the OTF file if available).
  • Double-click on the font as if you are opening an application.
  • Now the font installation window will open.
  • Click Install and wait till it’s done.
  • That’s it! You have now installed a font.

If you want to use the font in an application, make sure you close the application completely and restart it after installing a new font. The font will not be visible otherwise, even though it installed correctly.

Alternative way to install a font in Windows

If for some reason the method described above doesn’t work, you can try this:

  • Unpack the zip folder that you downloaded.
  • Go to the folder with the fonts and search for the .OTF or .TTF file (we recommend you always install the OTF file if available).
  • Right-click on the font file and select install.
  • Now the font installation window will open.
  • Click Install and wait till it’s done.
  • That’s it! You have now installed a font.
  • Make sure to restart your application.

Other Alternative way to install a font in Windows

  • Select “Control Panel”.

  • Copy and paste the font file that you want to install.
  • Now restart your computer and open the application that you want to use the font in.
