📌 The .FOT file entry definition corresponds to the font file applied and opened by Windows and apps that support TrueType fonts (.TTF data items). Accurately, the .FOT file category serves for storing peculiar font information and is applied to configure and install an associated TrueType font. Frequently, the .FOT data standard is utilized and opened by app installers when preparing custom fonts within the Windows environment. .FOT file resources are employed in the routine of installing “embedded font” structures in Windows shell. Furthermore, the embedded fonts permit custom font elements and schemas to be transferred between diverse computers and suggest an availability of a .FON entry file in addition to the predefined TrueType font. Generally, the .FOT extension elements are composed of the information that Windows requires to recognize and preinstall the font. At last, the Windows API embeds a feature entitled as CreateScalableFontResource that can be exploited for creating definitive file compositions.
📌 The .FOT file structures are natively processed and opened up by Windows shells. Hereby, the environment includes embedded modules and components, which genuinely comprehend and identify the .FOT item contents and composition. The file format is typically associated with TrueType schemas, which are normally available within all Windows apps and services, that suggest internal textual representation and visualization of the context menus, toolbars, element descriptions, etc. There is no obligation or necessity to preinstall any auxiliary software to uncover the current file composition and hierarchy. Instead, when you are managing to preinstall the specific font into Windows architecture, the .FOT elements would “pull” all required descriptions and notes regarding the new requested .TTF font. As it is specified in tech system specification, the .FOT and .TTF formats are closely related between each other. Therefore, this note strictly concerns TrueType entities only.
