Your Windows operating system comes with some preinstalled free downloadable fonts for users to enjoy. You will find them by accessing the drop down menu at the top of the page. However, you don’t limit yourself to only those fonts that come preloaded with your operating system. There are literally hundreds (if not thousands) of resources for free fonts for Windows. In addition, it is very simply to access and download these free fonts from various online websites,blogs and forums.
The first time I fully researched the resources for free fonts for Windows I was amazed at the selection of letter and picture fonts that you can find online. Typically, installing these free downloadable fonts is straight forward and does not take a lot of time regardless of which operating system you have on your computer. The websites that offer free fonts for Windows are typically advertising based sites which bring in a good sum of revenue fom advertisers – thus they are able to offer freebies in exchange.
The downside to some of these free downloadable font offerings is that often times you are asked to opt in for various newsletters and things in exchange for downloading the free fonts for Windows. While this is a little annoying (there are no free lunches) and usually these companies are offering a value add in exchange for your name and email. Of course, you can always opt out of the newsletter or ezine at a later date and you will still have the free fonts for Windows installed to your local hard drive on your computer.
The procedure for downloading and installing free fonts is dependent on which website or blog you are getting them from. I have found that the majority of these free fonts for Windows resources have an easy paint by numbers process that they bring you through. Accessing free fonts on the web is a bit of a trade-off; give up my name and email for quick and easy downloading of the free fonts. A word of caution, pay close attention to the process as you go through because all of the sites are different and not set up the same.
