Can I copy fonts to a second drive?

I have 2 hard drives.  I recently got a bunch of graphics programs (like a suite)
and don't have room on my lst (C) drive due to all of the necessary programs and
files that run Win 95, Internet etc.

I have put the graphics programs on my 2nd (D) drive where there is alot of room
but I can't seem to access my fonts on the C drive.  Can I copy fonts files to the D drive?  Including all of the files necessary to initiate them etc.?  How do I do that and what files should I move?

You can't just copy fonts, but it is very easy to do what you want if you're talking about the fonts in the Windows\fonts folder. You need the control panel:

Start | Control Panel | Fonts | File | Install New Font...

Then navigate to the folder with the additional fonts, select the ones you want, and click OK. Presto!

of course you can... just open your windows explorer
go to Windows directory (eg: c:\windows)... go to fonts directory eg: c:\windows\fonts)... copy all the fonts to your D drive...
if you want to copy your other fonts outside windows directory just find the files through START > FIND > Files and Folders
type in search box : *.ttf, *.fon, *.tt .....

as i know you would have to reinstall all the fonts
goto START > Settings > Control Panel > Fonts

click File > Install New Fonts

Select the directory, Select All click OK !!!

Hope this will help you !!!

Sorry it took so long to get back to you.  Yes, it worked fine and I have no problems accessing my fonts on either drive.   Thank You.

It is worth at least 50 points to me and I would add them, but can't figure out where to do it.
This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.

This is the Community Support link, if help is needed.  Also a question is posted there specific to these changes that apply to the experts here.  Also, I am including the link to our All Topics, since many new ones have recently been added.
