Sometimes if we are designing our special projects or just writing simple letters we want to be unique, the first thing that we take into consideration is changing the font style. But the pre-installed font inside our computer is pretty basic almost everyone using, we want something different, to help you find and install fresh and unique fonts that may enhance your project.

You can download the free font style to some website around the net like fontspace, 1001freefonts and much more, you can also check my previous post best free fonts. To install new fonts on your Windows or Mac computer, follow the instructions below.

After you downloaded and select your free font, installing the font is easy as 1, 2, 3, I will use for this instruction.

  2. Click “Windows Download” if you are using Windows or “Mac OS X” if you are using Mac, see the screenshot.Install New Fonts on Windows and Mac
