    Where can you get the Arial Unicode MS font?


    ARIALUNI.TTF file (the Arial Unicode MS font) needs to be in the PC's ./Windows/Fonts directory.  It is not included in any version of Windows.  It needs to be imported.  If you have it in your Windows 7 ./Windows/Fonts directory, you can copy it from there to your Windows 10 ./Windows/Fonts directory.

        If you don't have it on any of your PC's, it's available on the US FTP server ( ) in the /GUI/Fonts/Cyber directory.

        After it is installed, you should see it in your fonts on your PC at "Start - Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Character Map -Fonts"


    Some people contend that it is one of MS's so-called "true type core fonts for the web" and, as such, is covered by the "Grant of License" at . Others say not. [Jerry Specht has more information on this (in his "Answers" email folder, Rosalind Walters).]
