Every font on your computer has a corresponding file that contains the design instructions for that set of characters. Each font file has a unique file name that usually matches the name of the font. Sometimes the file name and the font name may not be the same. Font files can be renamed just like any other kind of file on your computer. When you rename a font file, it will change the name displayed for that font in your applications.
