How to Install Custom Fonts in PowerPoint

Sometimes a particular company insists on using a custom font they have specifically created. You may also want to use an uncommon font to enhance the design of your PowerPoint slides.

If the specified font is available on your computer, you only have to pick and apply it. However, if you do not, then it is necessary to get and install that font in your system before you can use it. Be aware that while some fonts are available free to use, others may require paying a royalty fee before you can use them.

Lastly, if you share your presentation with others, chances are, they do not have the custom font you are using. They will be able to see your presentation slides, but they will look different because their system will not display the proper font. The answer to this is to embed your custom font before you share your documents.
