How to Install Free Fun Fonts on your Computer

Sharing is caring!

We have had a lot of questions regarding how to install and use the fonts that we have shared here on our blog ( you can see them here.) There are a lot of ways to download fonts and today I am going to show you the easiest way I have found to do it. First get to a font you want to download – I’m going to show you an example for installing Batfont. First you want to click the download button, each sites button looks a little different. On this page for example, it gives you the windows or mac options. Since I have a PC I clicked on windows.

Be aware that on free font sites there are all sorts of ads and scams that put download buttons too. Be sure you click the right download button, here is an example where there are multiple buttons. The ad is circled in blue the real download link has an arrow by it.

When you click on it is should bring up a download box.

Here is where you have to be really careful about just downloading from anywhere. Sometimes it will try to open an executable file on your computer which could be a virus. For example in Google I typed in “free halloween fonts” and went to one of the first links that came up. It took me to a site called Acid fonts. When I clicked on the download button here is what came up instead of the download box.

Hopefully you can click on the image to get a closer look but if it says you have chosen to open a file that ends in .exe – CLOSE THAT WINDOW! Do not keep going! That font is not legit. Good font sources are 1001 Free Fonts, dafont.com, fontzone, google fonts…

After you have a real download box open, click OK. My computer automatically opens my download box for me and I just double click on the font folder. If a new box does not click open, find your downloads folder. Find the font inside and double click on it.

It will then open another pop up window that has the font inside. Click extract all files.

Another box will pop up that looks like this.

I make sure the box that says, “show extracted files when complete” is clicked because it makes it easier to install. Click extract once again. You almost there! The window should bring up a folder with the extracted file in it. Right click on the font file and a drop down menu should come down with “install” in it.

Click install and the font should now show up in your programs and you enjoy all sorts of new fun fonts!
