Microsoft Office Fonts
« on: Wednesday 14 July 21 12:45 BST (UK) »
My aged laptop (was Windoes 8 - upgraded to Windows 10) seems to have several versions of Microsoft Office installed over the years (see snip) There is also a folder for Office 15 in another folder. As this laptop is now failing on microphone and speakers intermittently and some keys giving trouble, I got a new one a couple of months ago.
My husband meanwhile took out a household sub to Microsoft office 365, so I installed that on the new one.
Documents and Spreadsheets originated on old laptop are fine on the new one, but Powerpoints are not. With some slides I have used unusual fonts which are not on Office 365 but most have been standard with my older versions.
can I transfer the old fonts to my new machine somehow, so my powerpoints look OK again?.

It is possible, I'm still using fonts from a previous computer that ran windows 98SE.

Yes, save down the TTF files for the fonts you require, then you'll be able to install them on the new computer.
