How to change the default font in Gmail

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)
Changing your font every time you write an email is frustrating and needlessly time consuming. Luckily, in Gmail it is quite simple to change the default text settings. In just a few simple steps, you can ensure that your text will look just the way you want in every email you write.
What you'll need: 
internet connection
When you log in to your Gmail inbox, you should see several links in the very top right-hand corner. Click on the "Settings" link.
You will be taken to a menu with many options. You want to look for the one titled "Default text style." You can alter the text there exactly the same way that you would when writing an email.
When you have chosen your preferred font, size and colour, scroll down to the bottom of the screen and click the "Save Changes" button.
If at any time you want to go back to the original default settings, go into the "Settings" menu and press the button with the T and the red X in the text editor. This will remove all of the formatting changes you have made.


Email fonts

Hey this is brilliant, I was searching for ages in Gmail to find out how to do this, and now I can. All I have to do now is figure out which font I want to use!
