If none of these fit your taste or the project you are working on, you can download and install more free cursive fonts from the internet.
Dafont is one of my favorite websites to go to whenever I am looking for a new font to use. It has more options to choose from as compared to Google fonts but you do have to make sure that you are not infringing anyone’s copyright while using their fonts.
There are beautiful cursive fonts you can download and use from Dafont. You can enter the word that you will be using the cursive font for to quickly preview how the text will look like and download them on basis of that.
Go to Dafont.com and choose the category of font you are looking for. You probably won’t find a specific section for cursive fonts but you can search for cursive in the search bar if you prefer.
I usually choose the Calligraphy section which has lots of cool cursive fonts.
Once a type is selected, enter a word to get a feel of how the font will look like once installed and used in your project in the “Preview” holder and click “Submit”.
Go through the list and look for the font that you would like to download.
Please make sure you look at the license of usage on these fonts before downloading and using them.
To learn how to install them, please go to the installation section of this guide down below.
Google Fonts is another go-to place to download free cursive fonts for word or any other apps.
Go to Fonts.google.com and select “handwriting” as this font type has the most cursive fonts available. You can also play around with other options available if you wish.
Enter the text you would like to see how the font will look and after that find that font you would like to download.
Click on the font that you are happy with and hit the “Download family” button on the top-right corner of the screen.
Save the font download file on a location that you can remember for ease while installing it later on.
How To Install These Cursive Fonts In Word
Once you have downloaded the font, unzip the files to a folder. IF you are on macOS you can extract them using Winrar for Mac OS if you would like.
Installing fonts on windows OS
