Windows 10 is indeed come with tons of system fonts that you could pick out of the bat. But sadly, from the aesthetic standpoint, these fonts are mostly outdated and quickly replaced by modern web fonts we used these days.

That’s why installing a new round of fonts can make your long documents somehow appear more inviting to read. It is also true that graphic designers often have to try different fonts to see the one that fits with the design — ‘typography‘ for anyone who doesn’t know the term.

You can install individual or multiple fonts with a drag & drop technique in Windows 10. The installation process has been perfected by Microsoft over the years, ditching the ‘good old’ Control Panel method to Windows Settings which is arguably cleaner and easier to manage.

And here’s how to add new fonts to your Windows 10 device.
