You didn't give us much to go on.

Can we assume you are running MacOS?

Exactly what and where is what you are calling your PC fonts folder?

What is the format of the fonts that you have downloaded? Windows TrueType (.ttf), Windows Type 1 (requiring a .pfb and a .pfm file for each font), something else?

i figured it out.  i am using a windows machine.  i have cc loaded on windows 10.  I just learned that if you double click on the star and not the Toolkit icon that the true type fonts load.  Everything is good now thank you.
