Fonts can be used on your Toshiba laptop to make a presentation more formal or to create appealing invitations to a party you are throwing. When you download a font, you need to put the font files in the correct folder on your system. The Windows operating system on your Toshiba laptop comes with a font utility that makes it easy to add fonts. If you have downloaded a font that you do not like or use, you can just as easily remove it from your computer. You can also change the font that appears throughout your system in locations such as under icons, in toolbars and in window headers.
