How to change the default font in Google Docs

When you create a document in Google Docs, the font is standard. But if you don’t like the font, you can change the default font so you won’t have to adjust it all the time.

Launch your browser, then open a Google Docs file and change the font. Click the drop down box, also make sure the Style is set to “Normal Text”. This is the main text style for the body of the document not the heading or title.

You can also apply some formatting to the default font like bold, underline, colour, and highlight colour.

Type in some words and then highlight them with your mouse.

Then click Format > Paragraph Styles > Normal Text, and finally select “Update ‘Normal Text’ to Match”.

Before you save your changes to Normal Text, if you want to, you can change the default font for titles and headings.

To do this, select any option from the drop down menu, then type in the font you want. For this tutorial, “Title” was selected, but you don’t have to use this of course.

After that, head to Format > Paragraph Styles > Title, and finally “Update ‘Title’ to Match”.

To save your changes and make it the default setting whenever you open a new document, click Format > Paragraph Styles > Options and then click “Save as My Default Styles”.

If you want to reset the font to the original default style, head to Format > Paragraph Styles > Options, and click “Reset Styles”.

Having done that, whenever you open a new document and type, what you type will be in the style you’ve chosen.
