I don't know about you, but I like to have options. I like to be able to select exactly what I want. And, if what I want is not available, I want to be able to have a resource to go get what I want. Recently, I found myself working on a project and I needed a specific font. The "Nintendo" font, to be exact. Well, Microsoft Word doesn't have that font, neither does Google Docs. So, I searched high and low and found a quality sit that allows you to find a wide array of font styles and download them into Microsoft Word.
Fontspace.com is a great website that allows you to find the font you want. Once you find the font you want, click it. On the next page, click "download" and you will be able to download it to your computer. Once it's downloaded, open it and double click the file. It will open, so then simply click "install" and it will be installed into Microsoft Word and Powerpoint. Give it some thought. This could be what you've been missing all these years.
