Add Font to Liven up Your Masterpiece

All of your downloaded-free fonts are no different from a white elephant, if you don’t know how to install them in your Windows XP. These fonts will occupy space in your hard drive while not being able to use them in your documents or graphics.

Installing a font is as easy as downloading it from the Internet. Once installation is done, you’ll be able to use all the downloaded fonts in an office suite like OpenOffice and MS-Office to improve documents, and graphic software like Adobe Photoshop and Paint Shop to accentuate pictures. These are some of the possibilities, so install your downloaded fonts by following these simple steps:

1. Open Windows Explorer by any of the following tricks:
  • Right click START menu and click Explorer
  •  Click the Windows (between Ctrl and Alt) +  E
  •  Click START -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Windows Explorer
2. Follow this path: C:\WINDOWS\Fonts
Open the Fonts folder where all of the fonts are kept.

3. On the menu bar click File menu, then click Install new font…
Add Fonts window will appear.

4. Select the Drive and the folder where you’re downloaded fonts are stored. On the top portion, the list of fonts found in the selected folder appears, ready for installation.

5. Select the fonts you like to add: press CTRL with every click for random selection or click the Select All button. Once selection is finished click the OK button.

Open the Fonts folder, and see for yourself the fonts you’ve installed are now included in it along with the old ones; thereby allowing you to use the newly-added fonts to create your masterpiece.
