    Thumbs up

    To anyone who can help. I am using Win XP Home, with sp/3. I have downloaded from a site of Free True Type fonts, but cannot figure out how to install it into or even find the Windows/fonts file. I really do need the help on this!

    Have a look here for a ball-by-ball

    www.myfonts.com/support/help_install_win.html#opentruetype

    What was the free font site's address?

    My advice, don't load too many they slow the startup

    In the step-by-step that Ed O'Grady provided, don't miss step #6. After the font is installed, you can if you want throw away the one that's in the zip unless you just want to keep it around.

    DejaVu_down is an open source (FREE) font set that any or all might enjoy. It is constantly being refined and updated. That link is to a zip file, but if you want to explore the subject in detail, visit DejaVu.
