    Font installation


    I'm trying to install fonts into Windows 10 that I have had since I had Windows 7. They worked fine on Windows 7, but I'm having trouble installing them in Windows 10. The fonts in question are font families the same font, but with different versions that are meant to be installed to work as one, so when using them in programs like a word processor, or design program, you can have a bold version or an italic version, etc. They all share the same font name, but each file is also named with italic or bold or outline, etc. so they have different file names. The problem is, when I try to install them, it will install one version of the font and when you try to add the others, it says you already have a font with that name, and will ask if you want to replace the current font with the new one. You can either replace one version of the font with another or not, those are the only choices you are given. How do you install all of the files so you can have different versions of a font? Basic renaming doesn't work.

    :)

    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?

    Font installation

    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.
