    How to Get Fonts from the Microsoft Store in Windows 10


    A font is a graphical representation of text that may include a different typeface, point size, weight, color, or design.

    Starting with Windows 10 build 17040, you are now able to install font packages in the Microsoft Store.

    Starting with Windows 10 build 17083, Microsoft is introducing new experiences for managing your fonts in Settings, and for acquiring additional fonts from the Microsoft Store.

    For now, there is only a small set of curated offerings from Microsoft’s library of fonts in the Store, but this will grow over time. Make sure to check regularly to see what’s new.

    Hopefully with the addition of a new Fonts section in Settings Microsoft will soon provide an interface option to change the default system font in Windows 10. It is difficult to understand why one should have to modify the registry—a potentially dangerous task—to change something so seemingly simple.

    As of today, 10 May-2018 in the Microsoft store : Your request appears to be from an automated process
    Note: the store link doesn't work for everyone(probably due to region or language settings), but just do a search in the store for Microsoft Font Maker then, I had to do that myself and it worked.

    You will need a touch screen or a Ink pen to use it.
