Getting & Installing Sanskrit fonts

(2) Decompressing the fonts (Windows)

What happens when you have downloaded the file depends upon which type of operating system you have, and what version it is. There are 3 fonts in the compressed file. There is one Sanskrit2003.ttf file to show the Sanskrit; and there are also GentiumPlus-R.ttf and GentiumPlus-I.ttf to show all transliterated text.

On the more modern operating systems, you should be able to just "double-click" on the file, and it will be immediately extracted either to your Desktop or else to a folder on your hard drive, generally giving you the option of a folder to decompress into. Note where the fonts are extracted to, so that you can install them on the next step.

Please now go to Step 3, "Installing the fonts".

If you cannot see the file to double-click on, then once the download is finished, please use "Windows Explorer" (or whatever other file navigator your operating system provides you with) so that you can find the file you downloaded in the previous step.

You can open up a copy of this Explorer by clicking on the 'Start' button on the toolbar at the bottom of your screen, then clicking on 'Programmes' and then 'Accessories' and selecting it from the list that shows up. Now find the downloaded file and double-click it to decompress it.

Please now go to Step 3, "Installing the fonts".

If the files do not automatically unzip when you double-click, then please try going to http://www.winzip.com or else to http://www.aladdinsystems.com where you will be able to find a decompression utility appropriate to your operating system. It will help you decompress/unzip the fonts.

Now unzip the files.

Please now go to Step 3, "Installing the fonts".
