copied fonts always install

No matter from or to where I copy a font Windows 95 always tries to install it. This happens even when the source or target is *not* the windows/fonts directory. All my fonts are installed so I get an error message saying I have to uninstrall (delete) the font in order to install another version. The only work-around I have found is to go to a DOS prompt and do my copying from there. Is Windows 95 designed this way? Is this a glitch? Is this just my two systems? Is there a setting to change this?

This is just the way 95 works. everytime you start the system all font files that can be found are loaded. that is one reason people have slow startups. if you have more than about 100 fonts you really start seeing a difference in startup time.
