How do I install fonts on my Windows PC?

Important!

  • Make sure you are installing the desktop fonts and not webfonts. Fonts purchased for @font-face embedding cannot be installed as a desktop font. If you purchased both, you may be looking in the wrong folder.
  • Zipped folders MUST be unzipped. Some Windows operating systems allow you to peek inside a zipped folder. This does not mean it is actually unzipped.

  • Drag and Drop or Copy and Paste the unzipped fonts into the Fonts Manager to install.
