Changing the Font Face

By default, the font of each new workbook is set to Calibri. However, Excel provides many other fonts you can use to customize your cell text. In the example below, we’ll format our title cell to help distinguish it from the rest of the worksheet.

  1. Select the cell(s) you want to modify.
  • On the Home tab, click the drop-down arrow next to the Font command, then select the desired font. In our example, we’ll choose Century Gothic.
  • The text will change to the selected font.

When creating a workbook in the workplace, you’ll want to select a font that is easy to read. Along with Calibri, standard reading fonts include Cambria, Times New Roman, and Arial.
