Ten of My Favorite Fonts(& How to Install Them)

How Tos


I love pretty fonts(as you probably guessed).  I wanted to show you ten of my favorites.  I’m also going to tell you exactly how you can install them.  I used to think downloading new fonts would be hard, but it’s actually easier than it sounds.  The site I use to get fonts is Dafont.com.  They literally have thousands of free fonts to choose from.  Below, I’ll tell you the name of the font I like and give you a direct link to it, so you can download it.  After I show you my favorites, I’ll show you how to install them.  Here are my top ten favorites:

  1. Before the Rain: http://www.dafont.com/before-the-rain.font
  2. Brain Flower: http://www.dafont.com/brain-flower.font
  3. Cinnamon Cake: http://www.dafont.com/cinnamon-cake.font
  4. Crab Salad: http://www.dafont.com/crabsalad.font
  5. Frenchy: http://www.dafont.com/frenchy.font
  6. Hsf Skinny Towers: http://www.dafont.com/hsfskinnytowers.font
  7. Jellyka Castle’s Queen: http://www.dafont.com/jellyka-castles-queen.font
  8. Sunshine in My Soul: http://www.dafont.com/sunshine-in-my-soul.font
  9. Sweetly Broken: http://www.dafont.com/sweetly-broken.font
  10. Windsor Hand: http://www.dafont.com/windsor-hand.font

Now I’ll tell you how to get those fonts.  I’ll show you pictures to help you know what I’m talking about.

First, go to your Documents(on your computer) and create a new folder labled Fonts.
