I have a folder with hundreds of font folders inside and each folder contains several fonts, I would like to extract all the fonts into one large folder where I could easily browse the fonts with a font viewing program

handsun123--Your question is not clear to me.
Do you mean you have text using many fonts already in a folder?  And that you have several other folders with text using many fonts.?  
You can combine all in one folder by opening the sub-folders, Right click Edit|Select All, click Edit|CopyCopy, open the original larger folder and right click Paste.
Then you should be able to right click|Properties and learn the font being used in each case.

They are font files, not text,  I want to view in a font viewing program without opening each subfolder

Not sure what OS you have but search the top folder (the one that contains all the other folders) for *.TTF or *.FON or whatever the extension is.  Whn you do this, all the fonts from all the folders will show up in your search results.  You can then select all, then copy them and paste them into a new folder on your desktop.  Don't move them, copy them.  The browse that new folder that will contail ALL your fonts.  Hope this helps,
