How To Install Google Fonts to Your Computer?

Here are the steps to download a Google Font and install it on your computer. You must have an admin account to do this.

Step 1: Go to the Google Fonts website

Go to the Google Fonts website (or it can be any font repository website you like).

Step 2: Select the font you like.

Click the font you like from the list, or you may use the Search box as well, then click your chosen font.

Step 3: Download the font

Click the Download Family button to download the font. It is usually on the upper right side of your screen.

Step 4: Unzip or extract the downloaded file

Normally, the downloaded file is zipped. You cannot use this yet, so you have to unzip or extract it.

If you are using Google Chrome, Click the Download icon and then the Folder icon as seen in the image below.

Alternatively, you can do the following:

  1. Open your File Explorer and go to the Downloads folder.
  2. Right-click the downloaded file, then click Extract All
  3. Open the extracted folder.

Step 5: Move the font file to the Fonts folder of your computer.

Right-click and copy the font file.

Go to your computer’s Fonts folder. It is usually in C:\Windows\Fonts, then Paste the font file in there.

The font file should now be added to your computer’s font list.


You may now open your favorite program such as Adobe Photoshop or Microsoft Word to use the font you just installed.
