How to install fonts in Windows 11 and Windows 10

The best way to install fonts on Windows 10 and Windows 11 is also the easiest. All you need to do is download a font, select the font file, and drag it over to the Windows font screen. Within a few seconds, you’ll have a new font without worrying about restarting your computer or downloading any programs.

Step 1: Download the font you want to install. Fonts usually come in zipped (compressed) folders. Extract the folder to your desktop or a location you can easily access on your PC. You can do this by selecting Extract All from the top of the File Explorer window.

Step 2: Open the Windows Settings menu and select Personalization from the left menu. In the list of options, select Fonts.

Step 3: Find your extracted font folder. Select the TrueType font (ttf) files in the folder and drag them to the dotted rectangle in the Windows Settings screen.
