    Of course! Here's how:

    Create a new folder on your desktop to hold the font you want to move.
    Open the folder using Windows Explorer
    Click the START button, and click on ‘Run’
    In the "RUN" box, type: 'fonts' (without quotes) and hit enter.
    Select the font to move (make sure you copy the bold and italic variations as well, if you have them).
    Drag the selected fonts to the new storage folder you created

    Once the fonts are in that folder, you can send them to disk, CD, or a USB drive, or even email them to the new computer.
