    Users may also install fonts onto the computer by opening the Fonts folder through Windows Explorer. Usually, this folder is either C:\WINDOWS or C:\WINNT\FONTS. Once this folder is open, select the fonts you want to install from an alternate folder, and then copy and paste them into the Fonts folder
