We do have a Free Fonts section where we list free fonts that you can download. There is no point trying to find a free download of Courier so please don't waste your time looking.

It is highly unlikely that you'll be able to find Courier for free. There's a lot of websites that will say "Free Download" but these are just attempts to get you to click on a link which will either take you to an ad landing page or you risk getting viruses on your computer. In the rare occasion that you do find a free download for Courier remember that it's illegal to use a font if you didn't pay for it!
