Download fonts for Microsoft Word
Obviously, before adding a font to Word, the first thing we have to do is download the font. Luckily, doing this is too easy and we found many quite interesting sites like Dafont where we can find thousands of completely different fonts to use in our work.
The downloaded files are generally compressed in WinRaR or Zip, so we will have to unzip them. Once we do that, they usually have TrueType (.ttf) or OpenType (.otf) files, both formats work in Word.
In addition to Dafont, we can find several free fonts on other websites; We also recommend downloading from this site or Font squirrel to avoid being infected with malware by using unreliable sources.
