Prepare for Success: How to Install a Font


Another delicious item you'll start a collection of: FONTS! In the classes you'll take with me, we download a lot of fonts. I love fonts. LOVE. And I think you'll enjoy building your own delicious collection, too! I always put my font files in a folder so I know where they are and I can move the whole folder when I move to a new computer. That way they're easy to re-install as needed. Font files come in two formats: .ttf and .otf. For our purposes, they behave exactly the same and are installed and managed in the same way. After you download a font to your Fonts folder, just double-click to unzip it, and then double-click on the font file. Your computer will install it for you. Installed fonts are available in all the programs on your computer.
