How to download and install fonts for Windows

I'm putting these steps down in writing, so I can stop bothering the IT people with my same old questions repeatedly in a span of a few months ^^.
  1. Download the fonts from the website and save it to your desktop, or to a special folder that you remember;
  2. Extract the folder you saved from #1;
  3. Open the folder and search for the font file. Right click and select Install.
The new font should be in your Windows now, e.g. Control Panel, Appearance and Personalization, Fonts. Else you can find it, by searching for the word font, in your start menu.

I usually delete the folder after the fonts have been installed.

Okay, we can start using the new fonts now.
