Install Fonts on a Computer with PowerShell

By Michael J. Thomas


It has been a busy week for me and so I have not had much time write a script for this week. I started looking back at some of my old VBScripts and thought it would be fun to write a PowerShell version of Installing Fonts. I created a function called Install-Fonts.  It has two switch options with the current version of it. I have some more ideas I'm going to update this one soon but I'm limited on as of this writing. I hope you all enjoy this one for now.

Select one file with the -File switch Install-Fonts -File "c:\Fonts\FontName.ttf"
Select the whole folder with the -Files switch Install-Fonts -Files "c:\Fonts".
