    I am pretty sure I have done this in win 7 earlier but I cant seem to find an install option in the control panel under fonts? Is it hidden or what?

    Control panel, view by small icons, then look for "fonts". Then drag whatever fonts you want into that folder.

    Extensis Suitcase Fusion is a good investment if you deal with a lot of fonts, having too many installed is a source of slow downs. Win7 is much better about it than XP was but it's still good practice to use a font manager.

    What is really nice in Windows 7's Control Panel is in the upper right corner there is a search window so when you can not figure out where to go or what your really looking for just type some key word(s) and help items (w/ links) will appear in the Control Panel pane.

    Or just use the one in the start menu, same search, very handy--a lot like spotlight in osX.
