Installing fonts

For some weird reason windows wont recognize the fonts i install. I usually had put the fonts in the windows/font dir and they would appear. I know win98 has the right click install thingy but i dont see it in xp. can anyone help?


hey... when you have the fonts (presumably in zip format) you do have to unzip them... and then cut cut and paste them into the dir.. WIN XP should unstall them automatically..

hope this helps..

here's a great tip from yoyo, which will save some system resources when installing fonts;

Tip/Tweak: How to temporarily install a font
Since it is not recommendable to install too many, better store your collected fonts somewhere else. If you want to use one of these only for one session simply doubleclick on it and minimize the window that pops up. Windows now thinks this font is installed and it is available in any application you open.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
