    :confused: i have some questions about Word and fonts.... :confused:

    (i run on XPpro)1.how do i take fonts out of my font folder(under control panel)and put them into word???(i just bought 15,000 fonts off of ebay and i need to know how to do this)

    and ...2. my fonts folder(under control panel) lists 590 fonts but my Words font drop down menu only lists about 330 or so ...WHY???

    and...3. i want to buy Microsoft Works Suite 2004 -CD or DVD ....whats the difference between regular and OEM versions???

    and ....4.where can i take a good Word course ....do i need to go to school or is there one over the web?

    this is my first time posting so i hope i obeyed all of the rules....not too many questions that is ... if so ..i apologize :eek: :confused:


    EDIT: i run on XP pro and I think it is woord 2000 ? (husband did all of the instaling)also i got a reply from someone that says....

    Word will pick the fonts installed in the fonts directory. You can see the installed fonts in control panel

    If you have new fonts to install - clicking the file menu in the control panel - fonts folder wiil give you the install new font option

    You can see less fonts because some of them will be bold and italic versions which you select by the italic/bold icons in word

    Regular version is what you would buy - OEM is for computer manufacturers to supply with a new PC

    Haven't seen any web course for word - but there are some good books - see MSPress and/or Amazon.com

    All you should have to do is copy them into the font folder.

    Use Fonts under Control Panel.

    Under the Fonts folder, use File - Install

    You have to Install the font to use the font.

    Probably.

    As you did not bother to mention what version of Word, its not unusual to get a response you don't understand?

    OEMs are cheaper, but you don't get any support for them. (you can use TSG tho)

    >>where can i take a good Word course
    Depends how much you want to learn. Go to Google and do a search for this, exactly as typed below:

    "free tutorial" microsoft word
