From funky and fun to chic and elegant, fonts run the gamut in style and can transform your documents from boring text to distinctive pieces that stand out from the crowd. There are literally thousands of creative and unique fonts that can add flair and panache to your finished products. Here are some of the best font resources available on the web.
It’s important to understand how to properly download and install a font in order to ensure it goes into the right area of your computer and shows up in your word processor’s list of fonts. Fonts are either in “Open Type,” “True Type,” or “Post Script” formats. After you’ve downloaded a font, go to start, settings, then control panel and double click the “Fonts” folder. Once you’ve opened the “Fonts” folder, choose “Install New Font.” Locate the font you wish to install. If the fonts were zipped, you’ll need to unzip them before installing them.
