How do I find my font after downloading it?

When you download a font we suggest changing the target directory to the desktop. If you can't find the download file, it may have been saved into a temporary folder that your browser saves files to. Here are 3 ways to find the download file:

1. In Windows there are temp folders to look in C:\Temp is the primary temporary folder.

2. The other temp folder is a little tricky to find, but here is an easy way to find it: Click Start, then Run. Type the following into the Command screen: %temp% (include the percent signs) then hit Enter. The Windows explorer screen will open and you can see all the temp files - the download font .zip file may be in this directory.

3. The other method is to search the hard drive for the file.
