How to Change the Default Font in Google Chrome;-  If you don’t like the font your computer uses to display websites, there are several different ways to change it. One way is to adjust the settings of your web browser, which we’ll explore in this article on how to change the default font in Google Chrome.

This will affect all web pages, and not just those you visit through Google Chrome itself, so it’s a good option if you’re using Chrome as your main browser but would prefer another font throughout the rest of your computer as well.

Change the Default Font in Google Chrome

1. Go to Chrome://flags

First, you’ll have to enable a flag. To do that, go to chrome://flags and search for fonts. You should see a setting called Force fonts DPI. Double-click it and change its value from -1 to whatever you want (in most cases, it will be 0, meaning your default font).

You can restart Chrome immediately or simply close and reopen your browser after changing it. Your new font should now be applied. If not, try logging out of your Google account and logging back in.

2. Scroll down until you see Force re-use of accelerated GPU (by default)

and then click on it. You’ll get a new window that will ask you if you want to use hardware acceleration. It will also give you a drop-down menu where you can select which video card to use for acceleration. Keep scrolling down until you see Use hardware acceleration when available and make sure it is checked. Then click Done. Finally, scroll down again until you see Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering when available; under that make sure it says Disabled by default.

3. Click on Enable

If you’re using a desktop computer and want to make sure your text stays looking crisp, it’s best to select Enable anti-aliasing for all fonts . This will force Google Chrome to use anti-aliasing when displaying any font on your screen. If you would rather conserve some battery life or don’t really care about fonts, feel free to deselect that box. Anti-aliasing is a process by which pixels are added to smooth out jagged edges of letters, numbers, and symbols. The difference between aliased (non-anti-aliased) fonts and anti-aliased ones is pretty subtle at small sizes but becomes more apparent as you increase font size—especially on high resolution displays.

4. Restart Chrome

Open up a new tab and type in chrome://settings/. From there, scroll down to look for fonts under Appearance. Click on it, and choose your desired font from either Windows or Mac.

5. Go to settings -> advanced -> fonts

Head over to Settings, then click Show advanced settings. From there, click fonts and you’ll see a new page pop up. In that page you can choose your preferred font and adjust other related settings, such as boldness and size.

6. Set your custom font

To set your custom font, open up your Chrome menu by clicking on Customize and control Google Chrome option located at top right corner of your browser window. Then select Settings option followed by choosing Appearance tab. There, you can change default font and style according to your wish. Don’t forget to click on OK button after finishing customization of default font and style.
