I just bought a new computer to continue my graphics work ... I want to transfer some or all of my fonts from my old computer running XP to my new computer running 7

when I try to copy a font and then paste to my 'flash' drive I don't get the option to paste ... so now I'm asking ... HOW do I get a font from one computer to another?

thanks!

Try to drag and drop, instead of copy and paste.

I always ASSUMED that dragging and dropping was the same as copying and pasting ... but I was able to drag and drop them onto my 'flash' drive. Who'd have thunk it. I was able to install them onto my new machine.

Thanks Broni!

Excellent!
Yeah, font folder is not 100% "normal" folder.
