How to Install Fonts in Microsoft Windows Vista

If you are looking to make your email, document, or printout appealing, funny or interesting, Microsoft Windows Vista has a vast, stylish collection of font styles both TrueType and OpenType. These styles work with several programs, printers, and computers to accommodate the different font-style needs of users. These font types often go missing or run into problems after Windows Vista installation (re-) or due to compatibility issues with a third-party program etc. Owing to this, you may want to install or reinstall fonts on your Vista PC. Glance through the instructions below to find out how to install fonts on Vista. You can also find here how to fix Windows Vista problems if you are running into any.

1. Click the Start button> Control Panel.

 2. In Control Panel, click Appearance and Personalization and then Fonts.
