How to Create Custom Font with Microsoft Font Maker app in Windows 10


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

The Microsoft Font Maker app allows you to use your pen to create a custom font based on the nuances of your own handwriting. Install the fonts you create to add a personal touch to everything you do.
