How to use Microsoft Font Maker Windows app


If you see a letter that doesn’t look quite right here, unfortunately there’s no back button, so you’ll have to make a whole new font if you want to redo it. The whole process doesn’t take a very long time, though, so don’t agonize too much over it. When you’re ready, hit Create.

Save your font as a TrueType file, which will use the .TTF format. If you’d like to try out your own font on your current PC, find the file in File explorer and open it up. Hit Install, and close the window. (You’ll now be able to access it by going to Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Fonts.) Then open an application where you can select a font, and see how you did!

You’ll probably get a kick out of typing and seeing the very characters you made show up on screen. But take a minute and type out every letter, in capital and lowercase, as well as numbers and punctuation marks. Look carefully and see if there are any letters that don’t fully show up. I’ve seen this happen with longer letters, like lowercase g or q. If you come across letters you’re not happy with, go back to Font Maker and try again, while you’re still familiar with it. Rinse and repeat until you have a font you truly love to use.

And of course, there’s no stopping you from making a whole bunch of fonts using different lettering styles. For example, you can make yourself a wide font. Or you can pass off your PC to friends and family members and see what they come up with.
