Windows 98 Fonts

Install Fonts

SUMMARY: Two ways to install fonts for Windows 98.

To view, add, or delete the fonts on your Windows 98 system, click the "Start" menu, choose "Settings," then "Control Panel." On the window that appears, double-click the "Fonts" icon. Similar to previous versions of windows, an option from the "File" menu allows you to "Install New Fonts.." These bring in new fonts to the operating system so they can be used by various applications via a dialog box.

But, as always - there is an easier way. Rather than deal with this menu, you can simply drag and drop the fonts you wish to use in Windows 98 from other areas on your hard drive, a floppy, a font CD, etc. It may take Windows 98 a few seconds or a minute (depending on how many fonts currently installed on the system) to recognize the new fonts, but once it does, they will be available for usage with just about all Windows 98 applications. Drag & Drop and avoid needless dialog boxes.
