Install Fonts in Windows 11
Font files are similar to other types of files in that they may be downloaded from websites. Moreover, it can be exchanged between computers using flash drives, CDs, and other similar methods.
Fonts can be found in a variety of places online, including free resources such as Google Fonts, DaFont, and FontSpace. Windows 11 has its own built-in way for acquiring fonts, as we’ll see below.
You can’t just place a font file, such as one with the OTF or TTF file extension, anywhere on your computer and expect it to work. Until a font is properly installed, Windows 11 and extension programs like Word will not recognize it.
Installed fonts are saved in a specified folder, which is described further below. Following the procedures below will allow you to utilize the font in any program that looks for font files in the normal Windows Fonts folder.
How to Install Fonts From the Web
So you can start using the font in your apps, here’s what you should do with the file you just downloaded:
(1) Look for the font file on your computer. If the font was obtained in an archive (as it very certainly was), unpack it first: Once you’ve selected it, go to Compressed Folder Tools > Extract all > Extract. The font will be saved in the same location as the archive.
Note: It’s most likely a ZIP file if your font downloads as an archive file. If it’s something different, like 7Z or RAR, you’ll need to open it with a third-party file extractor application. The rest of these processes are the same as they are for ZIP fonts once you’ve extracted the real font from the archive.
(2) Installing a font in Windows 11 can be done in a number of ways. The simplest method is to double-click it or right-click it and select Install from the menu.
You can also simply drag the font file into the Add fonts box by going to Settings > Personalization > Fonts. This also works with a variety of typefaces.
Fonts can also be installed straight from the Windows Fonts folder, which is located at C:\Windows\Fonts. To install several fonts in bulk, copy and paste or drag and drop one or more fonts there.
Note: If none of these ways work, double-check that you’re dealing with the font itself, not the archive it arrived in. If your font isn’t recognized by Windows 11, try converting it to a supported format.
How to Install Fonts Through Microsoft Store
The Microsoft Store is another place to get fonts. Instead than searching for a reputable source to download fonts from and then downloading the file yourself, Windows 11 provides a built-in way that streamlines the process.
(1) Go To Settings > Personalization > Fonts. More fonts are available in the Microsoft Store.
Twitch Tip: Right-clicking the Start button and selecting Settings from the menu is one way to get to Settings.
(2) Select the font you’d like to install, then click Get.
(3) If it doesn’t start installing immediately, select Install.
