How to install fonts on Windows 8

Do you love to write with different fonts but after installing Windows 8, you are perhaps wondering how to install new fonts? Need not to worry as the solution is very simple for this.

1. Go to Metro Start Menu by pressing the Windows Hot Key and Click Windows Explorer. You can also simply hit Windows key + R!

Step 1 Keyword

2. Now search for the font file that you want to install e.g. in your downloads folder. When found, right click and select Install. You need to have admin access to perform this function. This would install the font on your system. In case you do not see immediate effects, you can always reboot the system, which would make the changes as required.

Right click on the fonts file and click on Install.

Conclusion

Usually the font files are supported for Windows 8 as they were for all previous versions of Windows 7. These are in OTF and TTF file formats.
