  1. Adding fonts


    I run Win 10, and Office 2017. Some of my older Word documents use a font which is no longer installed on my PC. Is there any way of "extracting them" and installing them from within Word? I have tried looking for them on line, but coudn't find them!

    :)

    Adding Fonts

    Hi,

    Windows comes with pre-installed fonts, however, you can install other stylish fonts that you wish to use in your Windows system. To be able to add new fonts to your Windows apps and Microsoft Office apps, follow these steps:

    • Close all of the Windows apps and Microsoft Office apps.
    • Download .ttf files from a secured website that offers the fonts that you want to install on your Windows system.
    • Once the .ttf file is downloaded, right-click on it and then click Install.

    After the installation process, you should be able to use the newly installed fonts in most of your Windows apps and Microsoft Office apps.

    If further assistance is needed, we are here to help.
