Transfering Materials from one project to another

I found a great material for starship skins on a site, and I’m trying to get it from its .blend file to my starship. Does anyone have any idea how to do that? for the moment I can’t figure it out.

Shift+F1 and append it

I tried that, it didn’t bring the material in.

EDIT: Never mind I just figured out what it did

Append the material then select it from the material dropdown.
