Windows 10 comes preloaded with a number of different font types (depending on which language package you’re using), but you can also find a ton of different font types (free and paid) online. Installing these fonts on your Windows 10 PC is pretty straightforward. Here’s how.
Install the fonts using the source file
You can quickly install a font using the context menu of the font file. When you download a font from the web, most often the files are in compressed ZIP folders. In this case, unzip compressed files by right-clicking on the folder and then selecting Extract all from the context menu.
Then decide where you want to unzip the files. Click on Browse in the window that appears to open the file explorer.
Once File Explorer opens, choose the location where you want to unzip the files. When ready, click on Extract.
Open the folder that contains the unzipped files and right click on the font you want to install. Click on To install from the context menu to install the font on your user account, or Install for all users to install the font on all user accounts.
The police will begin to move in. The installation process will only take a few seconds.
Install Fonts from Control Panel
Another popular way to install fonts on your Windows 10 PC is through Control Panel.
Open the Control Panel by typing control Panel in the Windows search bar, then clicking the Control Panel application in the search results.
In Control Panel, click Appearance and Personalization. Then click on Fonts.
You will now see a large library of fonts currently installed on your computer.
To install a new font, drag and drop the font file into the font window.
After a few seconds, the font will appear in the library. Once it appears, the font is installed successfully.
Install fonts from the Settings app
Microsoft provided the ability to install from the Settings app in its April 2018 update to Windows 10. Instead of digging through multiple levels in the Settings app to find font options, just type Character font in the Windows search bar, then click Font settings from the search results.
Font options will open in the Settings app. Drag and drop the font file you want to install into the Add Fonts section. The police will begin to move in. The installation process only takes a few seconds.
As you can see, the process of installing fonts is relatively straightforward and there are several ways to do it. If you want to take your font set to the next level, you can even create your own using Microsoft Font Maker. Give it a shot!
