Once you have the new font file downloaded and extracted you will need to open up your Control Panel. You do this by clicking on start (or the windows icon) in the bottom left corner of your screen. Then you need to click on the Control Panel option on your right.

Find The FONTS Folder Within Your Control Panel.

Once you open your Control Panel within your start menu locate a folder titled FONTS. You will need to double click the icon to open it up.

Go Back To Your Unzipped File And Copy Your New Font.

While keeping your FONTS folder open in one window go back to the NEW font you unzipped. You will need to right click on the new font and then click COPY.

Go Back To Your FONTS FOLDER Within Control Panel.

Now that you have the new font copied on your clipboard you will need to go back to your FONTS folder. Once you get there you will need to right click and PASTE your new file into your FONT folder.
