Transferring fonts from one Windows PC to another

If you have collected up some fonts on one Windows PC and want to transfer them to another one, it’s actually very simple.

First, open the Fonts folder.

Go to Start > Control Panel

If you’re in category view, switch to classic or icons view, depending on your Windows version.

Double-click on Fonts

Now that you have the Fonts folder open, you can drag-and-drop to install new fonts or copy fonts out.

That’s it! You may have to reboot for any newly installed fonts to show up in your applications, such as Office.
