I have an HP computer running Windows XP Home. The instruction to install a new font is :- "Open Fonts in Control Panel. On the File menu, click Install New Font." My problem is that the File menu does not show an option to install a new font. As my operating system is a preloaded OEM version and HP do not provide any discs I am unable to repair Windows; which I thought might be the solution. Can anyone tell me how to install a new font please?
The File drop down menu shows "New, Close and Fonts" in bold with "Delete, Rename and Properties" all greyed out. Under "New" just the standard Folder etc is shown and under "Fonts" there is an "Open" which just opens another Explorer window showing the Fonts folder.
Thanks for looking into my problem. I am glad to say that I have found an answer. I used TweakUI for WinXP to "Repair Font Folder" and this has reinstated the "Install New Font" option. The "new" option is still there but has been greyed out.
