    Win10 Home and Pro, Win10 Insider Preview, Win7 Home, Linux Mint

    It probably would be possible but keep in mind that not all programs will 'see' the Fonts in it until they are actually installed which usually will copy to the Fonts Folder or prompt to copy.

    You have to 'Install' them, (right click/install), they'll create their own specialized folders.
    (Keep a folder of 3rd party fonts elsewhere on the machine)
