Changing the font on a Mac computer is great way to customize it to your preference. You just have to click a few buttons: The process is very simple and takes less than a minute to complete.

Open the Apple menu and then click on "Control Panels."

Click on the "Appearance" button. In the Control Panel, open the tab that reads "Fonts."

Change the font to your liking for each label and entry field. Note that you can't change every font on your computer at once. For example, if you want every font to be the same, you still have to individually choose that font for each label or field, including the "Application Font," "Desktop Font," "Window Title Font," "Fixed Window Font" and "Document Font." You can preview them in the bottom text boxes.


You can also change the color of the fonts as well as the color of the windows and many other settings in the Control Panels.
