Your Windows device comes with a variety of fonts, and you can download others from Microsoft Store or from a website or other online source. Here's how to see which fonts are already available on your device and how to add or remove fonts.

To see which fonts are available on your device

Select Start  > Settings  > Personalization > Fonts Or, in the search box on the taskbar, type fonts, and then select Font settings . Fonts will be listed under Available fonts.

Once you add new fonts they'll show up on this list.

To add a font from Microsoft Store

  1. Select Start  > Settings  > Personalization  > Fonts , and then select Get more fonts in Microsoft Store.

  2. Select the font you want to add, and then select Get or Buy. The font will download and install automatically.

To add a font from an online source

  1. Download the font file, and make sure the file is a True Type (.ttf) or OpenType (.otf) file.

    1. If the file is compressed into a .zip file, right-click it and select Extract to extract the files.

  2. Right-click the font file, and then select Install.

    1. To install for all PC users, select Install for all users (Windows 10, version 1809 or greater).

  3. If you’re asked to allow the program to make changes to your computer, make sure you trust the source of the downloaded file, and then select Yes.

To remove a font

  1. Select Start  > Settings  > Personalization  > Fonts , and then select the font you want to remove.

  2. Under Metadata, select Uninstall.

Or you can open File Explorer  from the taskbar, open the C:\Windows\Fonts folder, right-click the font you'd like to remove, and then select Delete.

To download supplemental fonts for other languages 

Select Start  > Settings  > Apps  > Apps & features  , and then select Optional features.


  • Not all apps support custom fonts. If your font isn’t showing up in an app or program, try a different app to check and see if the font is installed and working properly.

  • To check and see if a font has been installed, select Start  > Settings  > Personalization  > Fonts , and then search for the font under Available fonts.
