Installing Fonts in Windows® XP

Installing fonts in Windows XP is very straightforward. Windows XP supports TrueType®, PostScript® Type 1 and OpenType® fonts without any additional software. Simply drag and drop them into the Windows\Fonts folder or follow the procedure below:

1. Click Start > Control Panel > Fonts to open the Windows Fonts folder. You will see the currently installed fonts.

2. Click File > Install New Font....

3. In the dialog you will see two drop-down boxes, one for Drives and another for Folders. Navigate to the drive and folder containing the fonts you wish to install.

4. Select the fonts you wish to install and click "OK". That's all there is to it. The dialog will close and you will see your fonts in the Windows Fonts folder. If the "Copy fonts to Fonts folder" box is checked, the fonts will be copied there (circled below).
