Have you grown tired of using the default fonts in your Microsoft Word? If yes, well, you’re in the right place! Let’s not discredit the fact that Microsoft Word already houses some good font choices, but we also know that sometimes you just want to use a font that speaks your style more. We totally get that, and it’s definitely possible for you to add fonts in word so you can expand your font list.
To make things easier for you, we included instructions on different device platforms in this list, so whether you’re a mac user or a Windows user, you can have the option to tweak up your font list and add fonts in word.
How to Add Fonts in Word Windows
Before you start, you should first have a list of fonts that you’d like to download. You can explore a plethora of font styles online, like typewriter fonts, serif fonts, handwriting fonts, sans serif fonts, and many more. You can find free fonts to download on sites like Google fonts, Da Font, & FontSpace.
Once you’ve selected your font, download it from your preferred platform. This usually comes in a zip file, so don’t forget to extract it.
Head over to your windows logo or start button and click the settings icon. Search “Font,” and an option for “Fonts settings” will appear.
Drag and drop the extracted file of the font to this window, and voila! It’s not accessible and available in your Microsoft Word.
This shouldn’t take so long for it to work, just give it a couple of seconds, and you’ll be able to use your new font. You can also opt to restart your computer after installing if you like.
How to Add Fonts in Word Mac
If you’re a Mac user, don’t worry; we got you! You can change up the fonts in your Microsoft Word, and you just have to follow some simple steps.
You must keep in mind that Microsoft Word employs its fonts from the font library in the Mac Operating system, so you’ll have to go through the process of adding the fonts in the library. To get to the font library, just head over to your Font Book.
Download your desired font, which usually comes in a zip file. Once you’ve downloaded your zip file, you must unpack it first.
When you unpack your zip file, head over to the folder, and then you’ll see the font file available. Double click on this font file (usually otf or ttf). When you double-click on this file, a window will open, then click “Install Font.” This will add the font to your font book.
Open up your font book and check if the font has been installed. This shouldn’t take a long time, but give it a couple of seconds to take effect.
Open up your Microsoft Word app, and look for the font you just installed; you can now use it and enjoy!
How to Add Fonts in Word iPhone & iPad
Adding fonts on your iPhone or iPad is possible, but you do have to use a third-party app for it. You can use the app AnyFont, which is readily available in the App store.
Transfer the font file to your iCloud storage. Once it is already there, 0pen your iCloud and tap the font file. When you tap it choose, “export,” then tap “open in” afterward, tap “Import with AnyFont.”
When you import to the AnyFont app, open the app, tap the font file you want to use, and tap the “Aa” icon.
Another pop-up will appear, and tap on “install.” Please wait for it to finish.
Once the installation is done, you can open your Microsoft Word app, and you can now use your new font!
