    Font installation


    I installed some fonts onto my Windows 10 Word program. They appear in my Settings under Fonts exactly as they are supposed to look. But when I select a new font while using Word and type something, the font that shows up as I type is the default font, Calibri. However, the odd part is that if I print my page, the new font is printed, not Calibri!


    All I want is for the new installed fonts to appear as I type on Word. Is there something I am missing, or is there a problem with the software on my computer? I would appreciate any suggestions you can give.


    Thank you.

    Hello,

    I found these steps in this forum from back in 2010:

    Step 1:

    I would suggest you to try these steps and check whether it helps in fixing your issue.

    Open font settings by clicking on start, click on control panel, and then click on appearance and personalization, under fonts click on change font settings. And select the font size.

    Step 2:

    If you’re trying to change windows font size then please follow the steps below:

    To change Windows fonts

    1. Open Appearance Settings by clicking the Start button and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type window color, and then click Change window colors and
    metrics
    .

    2. In the Item list, click the part of Windows that you want to change the font for. For example, if you want to change the menu font, click Menu in the list. Then, make any of the following changes:

    · In the Font list, click the font that you want to use.

    · In the Size list, click the font size that you want.

    · In the Color list, click the font color that you want.

    3. Repeat these steps for each item that you want to make changes to, and then click OK.

    Does that help?

    Fonts installed but not displaying

    Hello Kirsty,

    Problem using the newly installed fonts has a lot of causes. One example is the font was not installed properly. To isolate the issue, can you answer the below questions:

    • Are you getting any error messages?
    • If yes, can you include a
      screenshot
      ?
    • Have you tried dragging the Futura LT font to the Font File folder? (Go to Fonts (Control Panel) and drop the Futura LT font)
    • Have you installed the Font before? If yes, try the below steps
    • Go to C:\Windows\Fonts using File Explorer.
    • Find the font file and open it to preview the font.
    • In the preview window click Install on the top right corner and you’ll reinstall the font manually.

    We are eager on getting this resolved for you, we will wait for your feedback.
