Deploy Fonts via GPO
Posted by Matthew Bennett on 15 November 2019 03:54 PM

Step 1: Create New GPO

In this example, I created a new GPO called Fonts.

Step 2: Copy files to Fonts folder

1. Edit 'Fonts' GPO and navigate to: User Configuration > Preferences > Windows Settings > Files

2. Create New File: Right click > New > File

3. In Source file(s), enter location of the file (for example T:\Fonts)

4. In Destination File: C:\Windows\Fonts\OpenSans.tff

5. Click OK

Step 3: Add Registry

1. Navigate to User Configuration > Preferences > Windows Settings > Registry

2. Create New Registry Item with the following attributes:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts
Value Name: [name of the font] (TrueType)
e.g. Orkney Bold Italic (TrueType)

Value type: REG_SZ
Value data: Orkney Bold Italic.ttf

3. Click OK

Step 4: Assign GPO to OU
