    you do it into your computers operating system.. control panel ---> fonts drag and drop
    of course you will have to unzip the files prior to this

    You need to unzip them before you move them to the Fonts folder inside the Windows folder...

    What operating system do you have?

    unzip the fonts first
    then go to control panel, then double click on "fonts". this will open the fonts folder. locate the .ttf files in the unzipped folder. now tile the fonts folder and your unzipped font folder, drag and drop the .ttf's

    Once unzipped you can copy and paste to your font folder.

    c:\windows\fonts

    on a side note, in Vista you can right click/install them.

    This is a great question as I only use a PC for my router...as I am a Mac person and design there. But does a PC only use ttf file? And if you put the fonts in the font folder as you describe do they come available for all programs on a PC? peace, Janey

    I created a short cut to the fonts folder. Makes it a lot faster to drop in new fonts. I keep the short cut on my desktop in the lower right corner. Always there.... just drog the new font into the short cut.
