i can get them onto my computer but i can't figure out how to access them while i am in WORD. any tips if you have the time?
Diane, When pulling fonts off the web you need to watch where they get saved and then find your Fonts folder in your computer and move the new font file to your computer's Font folder.
Make sure you are closed out of any programs that you want to use the font in before you move the font and reopen when the font has been moved to the computer's font folder. Sometimes a restart of your computer is required also
