Open Member Quote   Just had to post a note to say how impressed I am with this site. I only discovered it a few days ago and I have to confess that I am a TOTAL non-starter with computers...but very keen and willing to learn! :D I have asked for - and received - prompt help in partitioning my hard drive although I decided after sucessfully doing it, to go back to normal coz other stuff confused me! Still, I am upgrading to a faster processor and bigger hard drive in the very near future so will be carrying out the procedure again (I hope) Just wanted to say how grateful I am for the support and I will be recommending the site to all my friends - peachyglint1  Close Member Quote

Free Fonts can be downloaded from many websites on the internet. Often they come in zip files. Before using these fonts you must extract them from their zip file using a program such as winzip or Windows XP's built in Zip software.

This is the procedure to install new fonts on a computer running Windows:

  1. Left click the Start button, then Settings, and then Control Panel.
  2. Double left click on Fonts icon. The fonts window will have loaded and all of your currently installed fonts will be listed here.
  3. Left click File and then Install New Font.

  4. Then navigate to the folder containing the font(s) you would like to install.
  5. Select the font(s) that you would like to install and then click OK.

Additional NotesHow to install fonts

  • Windows 95, and 98 users may experience problems if you have more than 1,000 fonts installed. The most common issue is that your computer will slow down considerably because of the increased use of system resources.
