Where's the Font folder

I was under the belief that the font folder on a Windows based PC is under Windows/Systems/Fonts, however I cannot find it there.
I am mostly a Mac user, so the PC is a little less convenient for me, but I need to install the font.

Please, this is kind of urgent!

You can also type '$fonts' into an explorer window or the run box to open the font directory. This will work no matter what it is located.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

sscout is correct about the font location, but you can also go to control panel, fonts and do the same thing...
