You probably have an army of fonts on your Windows 10 PC that you can use to spice up your documents and other files. But how do you know which fonts are available, how they’ll appear, and how you can obtain more?
If you’re using Windows 10, Microsoft offers a couple tools that can help. With the standard Fonts tool in Control Panel, you can see which fonts are installed and view and print a preview of each one. But with the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, you can perform other tricks. You can see how each font looks without having to preview it, uninstall fonts you don’t need, and download more fonts from Microsoft.
First, make sure you’re running the Windows 10 April 2018 Update. To check, open Settings > System > About. Scroll down the About screen. If the Windows version says 1803, you have the April update. If not, go to the Update & security category in Settings. You should see an update called “Feature Update to Windows 10, version 1803.” Install that. If you don’t see it, you can always jump to Microsoft’s Windows 10 Download page to manually kick off the April 2018 update.
