          Photoshop just uses the system fonts, so if you have a new font you wish to use in PS, install it in Windows and it will appear in the font list in PS (although you'd need to re-start it if it's running when you install a new font).

           

          The common files/adobe/fonts folder you mention isn't the place to put new fonts; I'm no programmer, but I think it contains components needed by PS to work with system fonts (but I'm sure some expert on here will correct me).

            You can store your personal fonts in windows in any folder and install them from there, but PS will only look at the fonts that are installed on the system.
