Windows 7: Replace this font in IE with other

Replace this font in IE with other

Hi there,

I wanted to know if there is a method I can use to use a specific font instead of the other.

Actually, I visit websites written in Arabic and Urdu language and for some reason, the words are broken on almost all websites and besides that the default font the Windows supports for arabic/urdu doesn't provide too much readability.

I have this font "Jameel Noori Nastaleeq" and I would like to force IE use this font instead of default arabic font. I hope you guys got my question.

Thank you for your time and I hope you'll reply on your earliest. Thank you, once again. Take care!

You can chosse what fonts web pages used, but I don't think you can add a custom font to that list. It is possible that if the font is installed on your system, it will show in the list.

Change the colors and fonts used for webpages

If you change the Language script drop down to Arabic, there are several choices on my system. If you haven't already, you can experiment with those. Be aware that if you use the 2nd option on the link above to override the font from web pages, it will use that font for every web page. A Guy

Thank you very much brother! I really worked. Except that I had to use the default font. I mean that even I have installed that custom font I wanted to use but it didn't prompt me any list. But the solution I was looking for a problem, is found . Thank you for your help.

Thread Solved.
