Installing Fonts in Windows 10, Windows 8

After you’ve discovered the fonts you like, what you have to do now is to install them. There are a few ways to do this. First of all, if your fonts are archived, you must extract them with any extractor, such as WinRAR or other similar programs. Font files are usually small files that have  .ttf, .otf or .fon extensions. Also, in the case of some font packs, they can come as an .exe file that needs to be installed as a regular program.

After you download the files, you will have to check which type they are. If they come as an executable file, just install them the old fashioned way. If they come as font files, you have two ways of installing them: either open each font and on the top of the window click on install (this option is good because it allows you to preview the font before you install it) or, without opening the file, right click on the file and select install.

I can’t uninstal any font..says it can’t be deleted because it’s in use.. know how to fix that?

Not all fonts can be uninstalled, some are used by programs or the OS, thus, making them impossible to delete.

Sometimes it’s just a glitch, too. Close everything and restart your computer to completely reset what your OS thinks is running, then try uninstalling the font again.

I hope you already found the font, but if you haven’t and this is still bugging you now, try this:

That kind of looks like Gruppo to me. Just look up Gruppo on Google Fonts to check and see if that’s the font, yourself. If it is, click the circle with the plus sign in it that’s at the top right corner of the Gruppo block. Then open the selected fonts bar that appears at the bottom of the page and click the download icon. Install the downloaded font as you would a font pack.
