Option A: Right-Click Install
1. Navigate to the folder where you extracted the font files.
Option B: Using the Fonts Folder
1. Open the Control Panel by typing 'Control Panel' in the search bar and pressing Enter.
Step 4: Using Your New Font
After installation, your new font is ready to use in any program that allows font selection. Simply open a program like Microsoft Word, look for the font drop-down menu, and you should see your new font listed there.
