Method 1. Adding Fonts to Windows 10 Through Control Panel

Step 1: Download font resources that you like from websites like dafont.com, fontspace.com, or fontsquirrel.com.

Step 2: Check the format of the downloaded font file and extract it. The downloaded file may be a ZIP or a RAR file. You should open it to check whether its format is among those formats supported by Windows systems, for example, TTF and OTF. If it is, you can then extract it.

Note: Do not download any font files in EXE format, and do not download font files that require the installer, because most of them are malware or other programs you don't need.
