Getting New Fonts on your computer.

Question

I down loaded a few new fonts to my computer from the internet. Now I don't see them when I use Word. Where I do see them? I see them in the My Documents folder. What am I doing wrong! Please tell me the right direction in getting the fonts into Word?

Thank You

As I can see you downloaded the new fonts into The My Document Folder This is great, because it will make it easier to find

The first thing you will need to do is to click on the START> Scroll to settings>scroll to Control Panel and click on it This will open the Control Panel Box In the Control Panel Box double click on the Fonts Icon ( Looks like a folder with three letters of A's one green, blue and red) This will open a Box called Fonts which is where all the fonts are located In the upper left hand corner click on FILE> scroll down to INSTALL NEW FONT>this will open an ADD FONTS box in the box center bottom there is a DRIVES box click on if it has not been choosen yet> to the left there is another box with the Drive name C:> in the window click on the My Documents folder (scroll down to find it if you have to) in the My Documents folder find you downloaded fonts Then click on them to enter them into the entered fonts box above> click enter in the upper right corner when finished This should enter you new font into your computer Now that you have completed this you should be able to use your new fonts in your Word Documents
