Windows 7: "Font Viewer for Windows 7"


21 Dec 2011   #31

Windows Vista Home Basic 32-Bit
 
 

Came across this site whilst googling for "The Font Thing for Windows".

I have Windows Vista Home Basic 32-bit OS but I thought I would give Fallstar's solution a go and YES, it works perfectly. Well so far anyway.

I used only The Font Thing prior to getting a computer with Windows Vista OS and when I found out I couldn't use it with the new system, I installed AMP Font Viewer which I found to be OK but I didn't care for it as much as The Font Thing so, when I gave Fallstar's solution a go and found that it worked, I immediately switched over and am once again happy to be using it.

Many thanks Fallstar even though it's two years late.

Thank you for the help in being able to use The Font Thing with Windows 7. Fallstar, I followed your instructions and was able to open TFT, however, I am not able to install any of my special collected fonts I opened the zip in my Downloads folder and into a new folder ( TFT ). The fonts I want to install are in a folder in Docs. Am I doing something wrong? I would greatly appreciate any help as I have been using TFT for yrs and loved it.

Thanks

I've recently acquired another font-related product (probably for no real good reason), named Typograf.

It's from the same people who sell "Security Task Manager" which is a product I've been using for years if I don't want to spend the effort to get into TASKMGR.

Anyway, Typograf is very nice. Free trial if you want to experiment.

Why not just select the one or more fonts you want to install from that folder in Docs, and right-click and select INSTALL??

I have Windows Vista Home Basic 32-bit OS and I don't know how much different it is to Windows 7. Like you, however, I cannot install a font from a file in Documents though no problem from a CD.

Sorry, all I can suggest is what dsperber has suggested:
