Problem installing new fonts

HI, please advise-i ahve been trying to download new fonts from a couple of the well known sites. I get as far as unzipping the files. I have followed the steps on the forum here, even going to the unblock button. But when it says right click on the unzipped file and then press install there is no install button ever. Have also tried double clicking on the downloaded font but again no install button. Have trien with various fonts. Please advise where i am going wrong/possible solutions. Thanks!

You can try dropping them straight in to the Fonts directory.
C:\Windows\Fonts
It should try to install them when you drag them in.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I already tried that but it wouldn't work. eventually worked out how to do it. got them downloaded, made my documents---all well, then put them on USB to go print them (am working abroad and nowhere near my home printer) and it just printed them as the normal fonts. tried pasting them into new document in the hope that would somehow solve it. No luck. Any idea why or if it's solvable?cheers
