Safe computer fonts

A Full list of fonts available in both Office for Mac and Office for Windows

Last updated: 19-09-17.

Please note: The following details are the result of ongoing research to produce a list of available fonts across both Mac and Windows, where Microsoft Office is installed. Due to the changes by Apple, Microsoft and Office installs, some inaccuracies  may occur from time to time and you agree to use this list at your own risk.

Putting in the effort

At Operandi, we implement corporate identity and brand rules across a wide range of document types, so it’s important to know which fonts are available for such projects. These default fonts can be broken down into two main categories:

  1. Fonts installed with the Operating System (OS)
  2. Fonts installed with software (Such as Office)

Microsoft actively removes fonts during some updates, so it’s worth appreciating that fonts on one computer are not necessarily the same on another. What we are doing here is comparing computer installs and the fonts installed with different versions of Office, both Mac and Windows. Some fonts are limited to one weight only, such as regular or italic, and not all fonts include what most people consider the standard range. [Regular, italic, bold, bold italic.] We have tried to note which font weights are included.

The following fonts should be standard on both Mac and Windows starting from Office 2007 Windows and Office 2011 Mac. [Note special considerations for some fonts.] Microsoft install some fonts within Office, and may not be available to any other software.
