What are PFB files and how to open them

What is a PFB file?
A .PFB file is an Adobe PostScript Type 1 Font file.
PFB is an acronym for Printer Font Binary, and these files contain Adobe Type 1 Fonts in binary form for use on Windows PCs.
PFB files are similar to PFA files, but unlike PFA files, PFB files have been encoded in a binary file format and are encrypted. To use a PFB font file, you must have the associated PFM file stored in the same system Fonts folder as the PFB file.
