How to get " Install new font option ?

By Shivakumar ·
Hi ,

I had downloaded one font from web ( which was offered by the owner of the website) , then I had tried to install it through control panel - fonts . But there is no option for installing new fonts in the toolbar . Usually install new fonts would be in the file menu ( by default under file menu the following option shoul be there open , print,install new font , create shortcut, delete,rename, properties and close but in my system only create shortcut, delete,rename, properties and closewere available the rest open , print,install new font was not available), but this is not available in my system . Where could be the problem what is to be done for getting this option . I am not interested to reinstall the O.S .My windows 95 version details is 4.00.930 ie 5.5.00 2314.1003.

I don't know why you don't have the Install menu option, but you can work around just by putting the files in c:\windows\fonts. Restart after doing this.

You can install a new font by placing it in the C:\windows\fonts directory, and then opening the directory with windows explorer. Win95 will automatically install any fonts in that directory that it finds are not installed when you open the dir in explorer.

The above methods could work to get the font installed, but they will not restore the add font option. I've seen this problem, and using the "Repair Font Folder option under TweakUI has cured this. TweakUI is on the win95 CDROM, but I don't have onehandy to point you to the correct place, so it is also downloadable from

http://www.microsoft.com/Windows95/downloads/contents/WUToys/W95PwrToysSet/Default.asp

Unzip the download, right click on the .ini file and select install. Then look in the control panel for TwaekUI. Running that will give you a repair tab, select repair font folder.
