Have you put it in the fonts folder? Try c:\windows\fonts

Copy and paste it into the "Fonts" folder, located within the C:/Windows folder. This might be right or wrong, I am not too sure. Wait for others posts.

go to C:\WINDOWS\fonts
i think it may be hidden, so press the windows and R key, and type it there
drag the font you downloaded into that window

Copy the font file.

Control Panel > Fonts
(opens the folder the guys above are talking about)

Paste.

Restart Word.

XP
Start > Control Panel > (Category view) Appearances and Themes > Fonts > On the File menu, click Install New Font. The Add Fonts window will open, displaying a list of fonts and a list of drives from which you can select fonts to add.

Remember, having loads of fonts will slow down your computer

Rather a long winded way of doing it there. Just drag and drop into the fonts folder in C:/Windows :p:
