I have used pretty much every browser out there, but Google Chrome is the one I use on a daily basis. It is just – easier. I have my Gmail and Docs tied to it, and use those constantly throughout every day. I have Chrome downloaded on my Android phone, as well, and have everything synced between the two. There is not much I do not love about Chrome… except the default fonts.
I admit it: I am picky about many things. Font types and sizes are one of them. I do not use defaults on anything, even my ringtones and message notifications for every app that allows them to be changed. Google Chrome is no different. Let me show you how it’s done!
Changing Fonts in Google Chrome
Click the three dots at the top-right of your Google Chrome screen, and then choose ”Settings”.
On the left side of the screen, click on ”Appearance,” and then choose ”Customize Fonts” in the center of the screen.
You will be presented with the page that first allows you to adjust the size of the font you will see within Chrome. After that are several options to choose from:
From the drop-down menus, choose your ”Standard Font,” ”Serif Font,” ”Sans-Serif Font” and the ”Fixed-Width Font”. I love that it shows you exactly how your font will look – the type and size – as you try out each one. Play around to find the exact look you want!
As soon as you are finished making your selections and adjustments on this screen, all of your changes should be automagically saved. However, to be safe, I would click the ”Back” arrow at the top of the page since there is no Save option. Restart Chrome and you are finished!
That’s all there is to it! You now know how to quickly and easily change the default font in Google Chrome. What other Chrome-related questions do you have that I may be able to help you with?
