How to add fonts to Adobe Photoshop?

I put new true type .ttf files into the windows/font folder like everybody says, but they wont appear in the font select menu. I've tried closing and opening photoshop, and I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling photoshop, AND uninstalling and reinstalling illustrator just to make sure, but to no avail. They all appear in the font folder, but photoshop will not recognize them. Furthermore, I've been able to add new fonts in the past, they display in the font menu just fine...but not the ones I recently tried to put in. What's going on here? Are there more than one kind of .ttf? Is there a way to force photoshop to look at the font folder?
I've been tearing out my hair, trying to do this for hours...

You don´t load it into a program. You add it to the Fonts folder in Control Panel and then it is available in all your programs.

To start you have to unzip the file. They usually comes as Zip.files. If you have XP, there is a function for that, i e just rightclick and choose Extract.

Remember where you save the file.

If you don´t use XP you´ll need Zip genius, Win Zip or something similar to be able to unpack your font file.

Then go to Control Panel, Fonts and click on the File menu and choose Add new font. Follow the instructions and when you open PS next time the new font is available like all other fonts.
