    Is it possible to change the default font on Windows 7?

    While I was using Windows XP with my PC, I was able to switch into different fonts according to my need. However, now I am not able to find such an option after upgrading the system to Windows 7. Is there any option for that?

    The first step required is to click the ‘Start’ button on the bottom part. The start menu will pop up on the screen after that. Select ‘Control Panel’ option from the menu by simply clicking on it. When the ‘Control Panel’ window will pop up on the screen, click on ‘Appearance and Personalization’ icon on it. After that, you need to click on ‘Display’ option visible on the screen. Type colour scheme into the field reside on the left most side of the screen. Go through the search results and click the ‘Change window colors and metrics’ option under ‘Personalization’ label. You can then find a drop down menu having Desktop item displayed on it. Scroll that menu and select the item for which you want to change the font. The font option will be highlighted after that on the bottom part. Click on the drop down menu next to that option and select the font you want. After that, press the ‘Apply’ button to save the changes made on the appearance.

    Re: Is it possible to change the default font on Windows 7?

    First you're going to need to get to the 'Control Panel.'
    In 'Control Panel' you'll select 'Appearance and Personalization'.
    Click 'Display'.
    'color scheme'.
    Select 'Change window colors and metrics'.
    This window should pop up. This is where you can make some magic. See where it says 'Item' near the bottom of the window? This is a list of things having to do with the display of your computer. Basically, scroll through this until you come across things that, when highlighted, also bring up the 'font' option just below. Obviously these are the things you can change the font of.












    Click where it says 'Font', then select the font you desire. To the right of this list you can see that it also gives you the option of changing font size and color. When you have all the fonts you want changed, be sure to click the 'Apply' button before exiting the program.
