How to Install Fonts in Windows 10 (Download New Fonts)

In Windows 10, MS Office to be specific, an entire family of fonts is usually referred to as a Typeface (like Times New Roman). People also prefer using font style or font type.

And “Font” as a word, is reserved for a combination of different features such as font style, size, color and weight (like Arial, 12 pt, Red, Bold).

Despite the fact that Windows 10 has plenty of font styles, you may need to add new fancy fonts into your PC.

You have no problem because, in this tutorial, I will show how to add any new font into Windows 10 and use it in your projects.

However, there are several ways you can add new fonts in Windows 10. I’ll go through each option one after the other here in this article.

Option 1: Using the Microsoft Windows Store

Using the Microsoft Windows Store, you can add new fonts into Windows 10 that will appear on your various Windows applications including MS Office apps.

The steps are outlined below:

  • Connect your PC to the internet since you are going to download the fonts you want to install.
  • Go to Settings on your PC

To open settings on your PC, type settings in the search bar and press the Enter key.

Go to Windows Settings

Of course, some of the fonts aren’t free. Some of them require you to make a little contribution before you can download it. If you don’t have a budget for that, keep exploring for the free fonts instead.

After completing the above steps, the downloaded font family will be available in your Windows 10 apps such as Word and the other office apps like Excel or PowerPoint.

Option 2: Using the Font Installer

Microsoft Store doesn’t have lots of fonts. Therefore, you may not get the font you are looking for.

However, you can download whatever new font you want from other sources and install it into Windows 10.

Obey the steps below:
