    Installing fonts (PC)

    All you PC users, please help this Mac person out. How in the heck do you install fonts on a PC???

    I've downloaded some fonts and supposedly placed them in the fonts folder (so it said when I saved it from the website, and when I do a search, it says it is there), but it isn't there when I do the 900 steps to try and get the font up and running (in Publisher). I went to Control Panel -> Appearance -> Fonts in the menu on the left side -> File menu to Install font. Here's where I run into the issue. The font I downloaded isn't there. Where am I going wrong??

    (I really don't hate my PC - I just don't prefer it and right now I am missing the ease of my Mac!)

    TIA!

    If you hold down the windows key and press r, you will get the run dialog. Type fonts and press enter. The font folder should appear. Do you see the font in there? Does it show the font name in addition to the file name?

    Thanks Osky for the reply.

    Seems I had to add just a few more steps. I knew the files were compressed, yet somewhere it said it was uncompressed (and I believed it), but nope. So I unzipped and placed it in the Fonts folder. Showed up finally. Thanks for trying!

    It's easier to just copy them into your Windows/fonts folder...
