How to install a font on Windows ?

Other Windows version:
All fonts are compressed in a zip file. First go to the place where you saved the zip file. Then double click on the zip file to open it. Now drag and drop the files with the .ttf, .otf or .fon extension from the zip window. If there are more font files as one, hold down CTRL key to select several at once. After you saved the files on your computer, select the same fonts again and copy that into the Fonts Theme (as a rule C:\WINDOWS\Fonts) which you find in the Windows Theme.
Alternatively You have the possibility of installing the font file over the following way: My Computer (or Start) > Control Panel > Fonts > Install New Font.
How to install a font on Mac OS X ?
All fonts are compressed in a zip file. Since Mac OS X it recognize true type fonts too (but not .fon extensions). First u must expand the zip file. After that you must copy the files with .ttf, .otf or .dfont extensions into /Library/Fonts or into /Users/Your_username/Library/Fonts when it should usable only for you.
How to install a font on Mac OS Classic ?
For license reasons we cannot offer every font for Mac OS Classic for the download. The fonts for which this is possible are compressed in a sit file. This contains the fonts in the format .ttf and .dfont (for Mac OS X) as well as Mac TrueType font (for Mac OS Classic). The Mac TrueType font in the sit file is packed in the MacBinary format (.bin file). You must unzip this .bin file to get the Mac TrueType-Font in it, for example with the Stuffit Expander. The administration of the fonts in the classic Mac OS-systems is carried out in the sub-folder fonts of the systemfolder. For the installation you must put the unpacked Mac TrueType font (as a rule this doesn't have any extension) in the sub-folder fonts of the systemfolder.
Right question - May i use the fonts commercially?
The fonts on DailyFreeFonts.com are property of the respective authors. If you want to use a font commercially, you must clarify this in every case with the author. For example by e-mail. The Readme file contained in the Zip file gives you information about the author. If no Readme file should be available, you find also in the font information who is responsible for the font. Simply open the *.ttf file to this.
With the example of the font "Kaunitz" you see how some such information looks under Windows.
