Microsoft Word has long been the go-to word-processing software for many, and with each iteration, it brings a myriad of fonts to adorn your documents. Yet, there’s a vast universe of typefaces beyond what comes preloaded. Among them, Google Fonts stands out as a repository of diverse, free, and open-source fonts designed primarily for website usage. But what if you come across a Google Font that perfectly fits your Word document’s vibe, and you wish it was available in your font library? Well, while Google Fonts are optimized for web usage and are implemented via open access points for website designs, they are by no means exclusive to the online realm. Your browser effortlessly detects and displays these fonts on websites, but these fonts can also be individually downloaded and seamlessly integrated into Windows. The beauty of Microsoft Office is its adaptability; while it already offers an extensive font collection, there’s room to add more, tailoring your library to your precise needs. So, if you’re on a Windows 11/10 PC and want to level up your Microsoft Word with some Google Fonts flair, you’re in the right place. In this risewindows guide, we’ll walk you through the ins and outs of importing and using Google Fonts in Microsoft Word.
How to Download Google Fonts?
First, download the font(s) you want to use in your documents from the Google Font Library. You can download specific fonts or grab them all at once; if you like the particular font of Google and want to use it on your computer, head over to the Google Fonts link.
Here, you will see a lot of Fonts. Now, locate the font you would like to use and click on it. After that, click the Download family button in the top-right corner to download it on your computer.
Those Windows users who want to grab all the Google Fonts can navigate this link on GitHub. Here, you will find a collection of Google Fonts that is more than 600MB in size.
How to Install Google Fonts on Windows PC?
After downloading the desired Google Fonts on your Windows 11/10 computer, which you have, double-click on it to view its contents.
Next, double-click the font file (You will see it with the .ttf extension.) to open it. Then, you will see a preview of the selected font. Click the Install button at the top of this window.
Quick Note: If multiple fonts exist in an archive file, you must repeat each font’s process.
Remember, you are installing Google Fonts on your Windows PC, not in the Office program. Let it be any version of MS Office, including Office 365 & 2019/2016/2013/210, it will pick the fonts from your computer.
How to Use Google Fonts on Microsoft Word?
In Microsoft Word, you would use a Google Font the same way you use any other Font. Open a Microsoft Word document, and in the Font group, click the drop-down menu of Font.
Please scroll down the Font dropdown menu, find the newly installed Google Font, and click on it.
Finally, click anywhere in your document to start typing with the selected Google Font.
The adaptability of Microsoft Word makes it a versatile tool that allows users to customize their document’s appearance with a wide array of fonts. Although Google Fonts are primarily designed for web use, they can also be easily integrated into Microsoft Word on a Windows 11/10 PC. By downloading the desired font from the Google Fonts Library, installing it on the Windows system, and then selecting it from the font drop-down in Word, users can elevate their documents with unique typefaces. Whether you’re working on a professional report or a personal project, the addition of Google Fonts can add a touch of uniqueness and flair to your work.
