    Christina....

    I was able to download and install one of the fonts. I only tried one, Lato Semibold. Opened the folder of fonts downloaded, and dragged it into the Font Control Panel. It installed. If you did not unblock the downloaded .zip before you extracted the files, Defender may have blocked it. I did, extracted all files, and installed this one successfully.

    I think I see a step you missed based on what you said:

    "Right clicked on folder nothing - no install."

    You have to extract the downloaded folder first from the zip file. There are 2 folders in there. One for Mac, one for Windows.

    Second folder contains the Windows font files.
