Working in Microsoft Word sometimes requires the use of non-English fonts. While the Office suite does come with native support for international fonts, this support is not installed with Office by default. Modifying your Office installation by adding universal font support will give you access to Hindi fonts in Microsoft Word and other Office applications. You do not need to download or install a third-party font to access Hindi in Word.


Step 1

Open your Windows Control Panel. Swipe to the bottom right-hand side of the screen, click the "Settings" charm, and then choose "Control Panel."
