How to Install a Font With Windows 10

For those who right click on a font file and don't see Install listed in the menu, this is for you.

  • Download a font to your computer.
  • Unzip the font if it was zipped (many people recommend 7-Zip, including me).
  • Right click on the font file to see the right-click menu.
  • Hover your mouse pointer over Open with.
  • Left click on Windows Font Viewer.
  • After the font is displayed in the viewer, left click the Install button.

My favorite monospaced font is Droid Sans Mono With Slashed Zero:

DroidSansMonoSlashed.zip

I use it with Visual batari Basic and things like Notepad++. The code boxes on the batari Basic page will also use Droid Sans Mono (with slashed zero) if you have it installed.

1. Unzip

2. Right click on font

3. Click on "install" option.

 

That doesn't work on my computer. There is no Install option. It was like that on my other Windows computers in the past, but not on Windows 10 in May of 2019. When was the last time you updated your computer?

It updated a few weeks ago. I have Windows 10. This is what happens when I right click on a font.

That's weird. I guess some Windows 10 users have it and others don't. From what I read, it was like that on Windows 10, then it was changed to what I have.

You can also open the windows\fonts directory, and then drag and drop font files(unzipped) into it. Copy and paste may also work, depending on the method used.

I have installed Droid Sans Mono (w/ slashed zero) on my Windows 10 computer and can see it in Notepad.

 

How to I change the font in Visual bB to use this one?

 

EDIT:   Ah!  Found it!  It's in the Settings tab right next to Start Page.
