Frankly Asked Questions

How do I install new fonts on my computer?
For Windows 95: go to your control panel, click the fonts icon, from the file menu click on install new fonts, set your directory to match where the font lives and hit ok. 

For Windows 3.1:  go to your file manager and move your font file into the c:\windows\system directory.   should work just dandy.

What are good "font managers" to use?
This is a matter of personal opinion.  I use HP FontSmart.  It gives you a list of installed fonts as well as fonts that can be installed.  It allows you to print an index of all installed fonts or specific ones.
