Microsoft comes with dozens of installed fonts that can be used in all of their applications, including Microsoft Word. Sometimes though, it's nice to find, or create, a font that no one has used before to showcase the individuality of your document. Adding a font is easy and simple, and you'll even be able to use your new custom font in other Microsoft Office software on your computer where you can change the font.

    Download a custom font you would like to add to Microsoft Word. There are numerous sites on the Internet that offer both paid and free fonts.

    Click "Install New Font" from "File" on the menu bar. If you don't see the menu bar, press "Alt."

  5. 5

    Find the font you want to install and select it. You can select multiple fonts by holding shift and left-clicking.

  6. 6

    Press "Install" and it will install the custom font.
