Tutorial: Installing Arabic fonts on Windows 7
Background: I’ve looked everywhere online for a tutorial that explains (if possible at all) how to install Arabic Fonts on Windows 7, to be able to read Arabic fonts on the web, especially on chat rooms like in Paltalk, or web-based chats, etc. I finally figured it out! Now, since there isn’t anywhere on the web a tutorial to get this done, I have created one if anyone needs it.
Operating System in question: Microsoft Windows 7
This is how some softwares look like when Arabic Font Setting is not configured !!
Follow the steps below; in case you get lost anywhere, each step has a screen shot
Click Control Panel
Now select the Language/country of choice, like Arabic (Iraq), etc.
Finally, click Restart for the change to take effect
After restarting you should be able to See Arabic
Your Windows 7 will remain in its main language (ie: English as in this tutorial ) interface, icons and themes will not be effected with this configuration.
