How To Install Fonts (It's Easy!)

Once you have downloaded and decompressed a font file, you need to install the font into your system before you will be able to use it. Here's how:

For Windows 95 and 98:
Before you can install a font, you first have to download and decompress the file. You will also need to know where on your hard disk the decompressed font file is!
  1. Click the Start button on your Windows Task Bar.
  2. Select "Settings" from the popup menu.
  3. Select "Control Panel" from the sub-popup menu.
  4. Double-click on the "Font" icon.
  5. In the Fonts window that opens, go to the "File" menu and select the "Install New Font" command.
  6. Navigate to the place on your hard disk where you have the decompressed font file.
  7. Select the font that you want to install and click on the "OK" button.
  8. Close the Font window and the new font is installed!

For Macintosh:
Before you can install a font, you first have to download and decompress the file. You will also need to know where on your hard disk the decompressed font file is!

  1. Double-click on the icon for your hard disk so that the window showing you the files and folders is visible.
  2. Locate the icon "System Folder". (You need to be able to see the System Folder so that you can drag the font on top of it.)
  3. Locate the icon for the font you want to install.
  4. Click and hold down your mouse button on top of the font file, then while continuing to hold down the mouse button, drag the icon for the font file on top of your System Folder until the icon for the System Folder becomes highlighted.
  5. Release the mouse button and the font will be placed inside the Fonts folder inside your System Folder.
  6. That's it, the font is installed! You can close up any of the open windows that you like.
