Manage Fonts in Windows 10

We all want out work to stand out from the rest by being more stylized and presentable. Using the standard assortment of default Windows 10 fonts may not allow you to do this. While there’s a wealth of fonts being offered by Windows 10, they don’t suffice as literally everyone uses them and your typography can’t stand out.

To stand out, you need the extra edge by the use of fonts that are found other than the Windows world. You can visit multiple websites online that provide free fonts and typefaces and you can download them instantly. Good fonts act as the finishing touch for your document, presentation or project. So don’t settle for a font like Comic Sans, as it will only ruin the overall look and feel and readability of your document.

Installing and deleting a font in Windows 10 is pretty similar to how it was being done in earlier versions of Windows. You can start off by downloading your required font from an external source.  Just remember to download fonts from reliable and trustable sources, not from websites that offer a lot of un-necessary pop-ups maybe. Once you’ve downloaded the font, just follow the below steps:
