You’ll need to extract the files you’ve downloaded.

Details: Click the “Download” button, save the zip file somewhere on your hard drive, double-click the zip file to open it, then either click “Extract all files” or drag and drop the files from the zip window somewhere else (hold down the CTRL key to select several files at once)
You must first install an unzip utility for Windows versions from the twentieth century.
Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP/Vista/XP/Vista/Vist
Right-click on the font files (.ttf,.otf, or.fon) and choose Install from the menu.

Any Windows version is supported.
Place the font files (.ttf,.otf, or.fon) in the Fonts folder, which is normally C:WindowsFonts or C:WINNTFonts (or Start Menu > Control Panel > Appearance & Themes > Fonts).

Note that, unlike Winzip, the Windows internal unzip tool does not allow you to install a font by simply dragging and dropping the.ttf file from the zip window to the Fonts window. Drag and drop it somewhere (for example, on the desktop) before dropping it into the Fonts folder.
Instead of dragging and dropping fonts into the window, go to File > Install a new font… in the Fonts folder menu and explore the fonts. Despite the fact that this procedure is time-consuming, it appears to be effective. 

If that’s not enough, there are a few videos on YouTube.

You don’t need to install a font if you only need it once in a while (for Windows XP/Vista, not Windows 7/8). Simply double-click the.ttf file to open the preview window and utilize it in most of the programs you’ll run (apart from a few exceptions like OpenOffice).

TrueType and OpenType fonts (.ttf and.otf) are recognized by Mac OS X, while PC bitmap fonts are not (.fon).
Because the files are compressed, you may require a program like Stuffit Expander to open them.

Double-click the font file in Mac OS X 10.3 or later (including the FontBook) > “Install font” button at the bottom of the preview.

Under any Mac OS X version:
Put the files in /Library/Fonts (for all users) or /Users/Your username/Library/Fonts (for your specific user) (for you only).

Old Mac typefaces are no longer supported by dafont on Mac OS 9 or earlier. You must first convert the font files (.ttf or.otf) that you have downloaded.
Then, in the System folder, drag the font suitcases. The system will suggest that you save them in the Fonts folder.

In the File Manager, copy the font files (.ttf or.otf) to fonts:/.
Alternatively, go to the /home folder and pick View > Show Hidden Files from the menu to reveal the hidden folder.
fonts (if it doesn’t exist, make one) and then copy the font files there.
Alternatively: (under some Linux versions – Ubuntu for example) In the preview window, double-click the font file > “Install font” button.

To use the new font, it is occasionally required to reopen the current application.
The font will appear in your software’s font combo-box, and you can proceed as usual (word processing, drawing etc.).

If you use a font in your web pages that isn’t installed on the visitor’s computer, it will be replaced by his browser’s default font, which is usually Times New Roman.
(You can use CSS to define multiple fonts in priority order, but nothing is guaranteed.)

The primary options: – The simplest way to create a title is to create a picture. Save the image as a PNG or GIF using a drawing application.
– Using the CSS3 @font-face feature, you can embed a font in a long paragraph so that visitors can download it at the same time as the page.
– Use PHP to create an image

Only the fonts that are installed on your correspondent’s machine can be viewed. Sending an email or instant message (MSN Messenger, etc.) using a non-standard font is best avoided; alternatively, make sure your correspondent has it installed as well, or he will see the default font.

Windows is intended to be able to handle around 1000 fonts at a time. However, avoid installing too many fonts at once because this causes the system to slow down. To run, many programs must first load all installed fonts into memory.
As a result, it’s best to keep typefaces you use frequently in the Fonts folder. Keep the others in a different folder or on a different storage device so you can install and remove them whenever you choose.

The typefaces on this page are freewares or sharewares, sometimes demonstrations, that don’t include stressed letters, figures, or some punctuation characters in a systematic way.
This may be seen by clicking on the typefaces to bring up the characters map.

After the new font has been installed, relaunch the target application.
Make sure you’ve copied the.ttf file into the Fonts folder, not the zip.
In the worst-case scenario, restart your computer.
