Font Installation

Have you had problems installing new fonts with Windows Vista? Well here is your answer, and it works wonderfully for my computer. Here is the link where I found the answer.

Here are the steps if you do not want the link:
  1. Go to Control Panel ->Appearance and Personalization -> Fonts
  2. You will be taken to the System's fonts folder. Right click anywhere inside the folder and click add fonts. You will be given a pop-up box which will aid in installing new fonts.
  3. Using the Drop down menu at 'Drives" and NetWork", select the folder where you have kept the new font files.
  4. The font files may be in different formats like Type 1, True Type or OPen Type.
  5. If the folder you have selected has any font files in these formats, it will be listed under 'List of Fonts'
  6. You can preview each font style below by highlighting them. To install, just select the font files you want to install and click 'Install.'
  7. Make sure you have selected 'Copy Fonts to fonts folder,' so that you can manager all the font files easily.
