This is my first geek post and today I will be sharing with you how to add a font in Microsoft paint. There are a variety of fun fonts available, but cannot figure out how to insert them in Microsoft Paint?
Paint already has got predefined fonts. But these fonts might not be not appealing or you might want to add additional Google fonts.
Most of the times the web developers use other fonts apart from the predefined fonts to make their sites more pleasing to the users.
Paint uses the Windows library to get its fonts, which means that you will need to install the font to your computer system first. This tutorial will guide you to add Google font.
Step 1: Go to Google fonts check for the fonts, there are around 915 font families available in Google fonts.
Step 2: Select the font which you liked the most. In my case I chose pacifico, you need to type the same in the search option (denoted A in the below image). Next, you need to click on the plus symbol (denoted B in below image)
Step 3: Once you click on the plus symbol you will get 1 Family selected. Next Click on the minus (-) symbol as in the below image.
Step 4: Click on the symbol as shown in the below image and you will get the download option.
There are two options Embed and Customize
You can embed the font in the web pages, the code is already mentioned below. The CSS also the code is mentioned.
If you click on customize it shows whether the selected font is supported in various languages. For example, Cyrillic, Extended Latin, and Vietnamese are supported by Pacifico, whereas Latin is supported by all Fonts.
Step 5: Once you click on download, the font will get downloaded on your system. I have created a folder on my desktop and pasted the zipped downloaded font file. Right-click on the downloaded zipped file and click on extract here.
Step 6: Two files will be extracted, OFL and Pacifico-Regular. Right-click on the font which you have selected, in my case it is Pacifico-Regular and clicks on the install button.
Step 7: Once you click on install, it will take a few seconds for the font to get installed on your system. Then you can open Microsoft Paint and Tada! the installed font appears.
The newly installed font not only appears in Microsoft paint but also in other applications like Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, etc. One main advantage of using Google, fonts are it can be used for both personal and commercial use.
