I have a bunch of fonts in on my computer and I want to add them to Word 97.  Is there a way for me to add them so I can use them in word?

If the fonts are in TrueType (or OpenType) format, and are 'installed' on Windows (i.e. added to the Windows\Fonts folder), then they should be automatically available to Windows applications such as Word.

They are not in the   Windows\Fonts folder.

Do  I just copy them and add them to the   Windows\Fonts folder   ???

Most are TrueType Format

You should be able to, but:

(a) You will need to be logged in with adminstrator credentials.

(b) if the FONT name (not the FILE name) is already in use by an installed font, you can't add the new one unless you delete the old one.

(c) Windows Vista and Windows 7 may impose extra restrictions (not sure).

(d) I think that only TrueType (.TTF) and OpenType (.OTF) fonts will automatically appear in application font lists (plus any others which are related to the current default printer).
