📌 A .FON file specification corresponds to the Windows 3.x font library utilized by program solutions that access customly defined system fonts. In practice, this certain data logic involves a particular quantity of fonts stored and opened in the .FNT data representation. Currently the .FON techniques are absolutely obsolete and outdated. Generally, .FON file items are comprehended as .EXE definitions which have been lately renamed into the predefined format constitution. Instead of a composition of the executable objects, a .FON object typically includes stroked or bitmapped fonts stored in the .FNT hierarchy. Various program utilities and solutions which employ Windows font techniques generally reference the initial .FON data items integrated into the operating system shell. As you may obviously notice, the font instances included into the .FON constitution cannot be resized in any way similarly to TrueType (.TTF) mechanics algorithm.
📌 Up-to-date editions of Windows architecture are not capable of opening up, exploring and researching the .FON file entities due to its obsolete logic and extension layout. Basically, the .FON file specification technology is natively supported by Microsoft Windows Font Viewer plugin, integrated into the operating system by default, from scratch. Fundamentally, none of .FON samples can be reviewed and sustained within macOS or Linux eco-environments, as long as this precise file standard is supported and reviewable within Windows infrastructures solely. Actually, the peak of the .FON file format popularity has been reached in the early 1990’s since the release of Windows 3.x branch and its further inheritance by Windows 95 revision. Until now, the following file entries can almost never be met in present-day platforms of the latest generations. Nevertheless, the noted data standard can still be recognized and opened up by Microsoft Windows Font Viewer add-on, preinstalled with the Windows distributive bundle.
