How to Download all Google Fonts on a PC

The first step is to select every single Google Font from their website and add it to the download folder, right? Wrong. With over 1,600 fonts this is likely to try even the most patient of people. Your best bet is to locate a trusted zip file from somewhere like this, available from Github.

This will download a zip file containing all of the Truetype fonts currently available from Google. It’s then a simple matter of installing them all, or choosing which ones you want to install manually, or installing every single one – which ever takes your preference.


Install Every Google Font on Mac

To install all Google Fonts on a Mac, simply load up Terminal by clicking the magnifying glass in the top right corner, next to your login name, and run the following command:

curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/qrpike/Web-Font-Load/master/install.sh | bash

Enter your admin password for the account, and that’s it! It’s that simple.

This will download and install every single Google Font presently available. To keep your Google Fonts updated, simply rerun the script periodically.
