How to change the fonts in Google Chrome for macOS 11 Big Sur

How to change the fonts in Google Chrome for macOS 11 Big Sur

  1. Select the Menu button in the top-right of the Chrome web browser.
  2. Select Settings from the menu.
  3. The Google Chrome settings page will now appear.
  4. In the search box at the top of the settings page, type “fonts”.
  5. Under the Appearance options, select Customise fonts.
  6. On the Customise fonts page you can choose which fonts Chrome will use for Serif, Sans Serif and Monospace font styles.
    1. Standard font: If the website you are visiting has not indicated which font, or font style, to use the browser will use the font you choose here.
    2. Serif font: These are older style fonts like Times News Roman that have little feet at the top and bottom of the letters. If the website you are visiting only states to use a Serif font, the browser will use the font you choose here.
    3. San-serif font: These are modern fonts such as Helvetica and Arial. They are simpler in style than serif fonts and don't have feet at the top and bottom of letters. If the website you are visiting only states to use a Sans-serif font, the browser will use the font you choose here.
    4. Fixed-width font: These are monospace fonts, such as Courier. The letters, numbers, and spacing all have the same width. These fonts are often used for writing computer code. If the website you are visiting only states to use a Monospace font, the browser will use the font you choose here.

Note: If this does not work it could be because someone else manages your computer settings (an IT department or administrator). If this is the case, you will need to contact them to access these settings or for further help.
