This may be a simple solution, but I am trying to install a new font onto my computer and am not used to doing design work on my PC (I often complete these projects on my Mac).

I have saved the font files to my computer, but is there another step? How do I go about installing the font?

Hi Jackie!

Here is a simple way to install new fonts on to your PC:

>Go to the "Start" menu

>Click on "Control Panel"

>(if using Category View) Click "Appearance and Themes" then "Fonts"
or
>(if using the Classic View) Open the "Fonts" folder

>Highlight the fonts you would like to install and drag them into the "Fonts" folder

That should be it.
