How to Change Internet Font

by Kefa Olang

Internet font is basically the text you see on web pages. By default, Internet font is set to specific sizes and colors depending on the web browser. Internet options, however, allows you to override these default settings and make font size larger to make text more legible. This simple process can be accomplished easily regardless of whether you are using Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. There's also no limit to the number of times you can change the font.

Internet Explorer Users

Launch Internet Explorer and click the "Tools" button located on the top panel. Scroll down and click "Internet Options" to open the options console.

Click the "General" tab and click the "Fonts" button. Select the font type to use for your browser in the "Webpage font" window.

Click "OK" to save the changes and "OK" again to close the options console.

Mozilla Firefox Users

Launch Mozilla Firefox and click the Firefox button on the top menu. Click "Preferences" and click the "Content" tab.

Select the Internet font you want in the "Default font" window. You can select from different font types such as Courier, Verdana, Times New Roman and more.

Select the font size and click the "Colors" button. Select the text color and click "OK." Close the Preferences window when you are done changing the Internet font. Close and relaunch your web browser.
