Any help is greatly appreciated.

Most Windows fonts are fine.
Double click the downloaded font file to open, at the bottom of the font menu is an install button, click it. :mac:
Note: Please check that the font isn't already installed by checking in the Font Book app. first.
Fonts are installed in your user library for your use, drag them from the user list into the computer list in Font Book if you want all users to access them.
