Importing/Exporting fonts

by boblalux / December 14, 2012 9:58 PM PST

On my XP PC, I have under Windows>fonts, a font called French Script. This I do not have on my Windows 7 laptop. How (if at all) can I transfer the French Script font to my laptop?

I never saw an Export/Import menu.

I only needed to copy the .TTF file to the right spot on the next PC and maybe reboot.

Do you think the days of fishing around for files and copying them over are over?
That is, must every task be done with an app or menu?

You can copy the font

Just copy that font to a flash drive, then copy it to the FONTS folder on your Windows 7 system. That's always worked for me.

Good luck.
