Microsoft’s latest April 2018 Update brings the ability to download and install Fonts straight from the Microsoft Store. This will trigger a few benefits like users’ ability to use the official channel to download fonts without having to rely on third-parties that have the potential of being dangerous for the system’s safety. Here’s how to install and activate fonts from the Microsoft Store.
