I love with Windows 8 that you can install fonts just by right clicking on the font then choosing 'install', however, there is another option that says 'install as shortcut'. What is the difference between the 2 options for installing fonts?

Thank you Loopy

Installing fonts as shortcut is for when you want to store the font in a non default location in a different folder or on a different drive for example.
