The Microsoft Windows operating system includes a basic graphics creation and editing tool called Paint. As with other Windows programs, the typefaces available for use within Paint are linked to the collection of fonts in the operating system's central Fonts folder. As long as you have administrator-level access to Windows, and have the file associated with the new font available on your computer, adding a type face to Windows 7 or Windows Vista and making it available to Paint become quick tasks.

Log into Microsoft Windows using an account that has administrator-level permissions.
Navigate to the folder containing the font file that you want to add to Windows and make available to Paint.
Right-click the font file and select "Install." Depending on your system configuration, you may need to confirm your choice before Windows can continue. The installation process only takes a few seconds, and once complete the newly installed font is immediately available to all Windows programs, including Paint.
