Working with Fonts

Everything you type appears in a font, or typeface, a particular design set of letters, numbers, and other characters. The height of characters in a font is measured in points, each point being approximately 1/72 inch, while the width is measured by pitch, which refers to how many characters can fit in an inch. You might have heard common font names, such as Times New Roman, Arial, Courier, or Symbol. Windows comes with a variety of fonts for displaying text and printing documents. Using the Fonts window, you can view these fonts, compare them to each other, see a sample of how a font appears when printed, and even install new fonts.

Install a Font

Click the Start button, click Control Panel, and then double-click the Fonts icon in Classic view.

Click the File menu, and then click Install New Font.

Navigate to the drive and folder containing the font you want to install.

Select the font. To select more than one font, hold down the Ctrl key while you click each font.

Click OK.

Click the Close button.
