I really want to know how to change font style or type in Microsoft Teams.

Not size or effect(bold, Italic and so on) only kinds of font! :)

 

Do you have any idea for this?

Hi Adele

I am not aware of any way to change the fonts from within Teams, however the workaround that I use is to put my text in Microsoft Word, format it as I want, and then copy & paste it into Teams.

It should retain the format from word.

See how you go and let me know if that works for you?

Cheers
Damien

Agree here, not aware of any setting that allows to modify the default font in teams so best thing you can do is what Damien has suggested or manually change the font while tying a chat
Highlighted

That seems awfully short sighted MS.  Nearly every single app allows us to change fonts to a default font.  I'm supposed to click on the "Font" button every time I want to change the letter color?

Highlighted

And "shortsighted" is actually being too kind. It's actually presumptuous, controlling and, at the end of the day, it's just plain poor application development practice. Seriously, MS needs to stop trying to micromanage things that are none of their business, as though they know better. The font I choose to use is none of their business.

 

In the case of fonts, it doesn't just have a comsetic effect, though that is reason enough. It has a functional impact, as I need to use a monotype font.

 

Why would MS decide that allowing user's to choose their font is not a "feature" that should be made available?

Highlighted
Well, I guess that’s something we got to live with when using other’s s hosted services!
The uservoice was declined about fonts but continue vote for it and maybe they change their mind :)
Keep in mind that Teams is still a fairly new product and the Teams team are quite busy working on more important features and updates for some time ahead! After that, this and other kind of features may see the light again

Same here. 

The Simplified Chinese font looks extremely ugly.... Tried every way to change it but failed.

Why do you need to use a Monotype font?

 

Other than Skype for Business I can't really think of other messaging apps that let you change the default font. Not Yammer, not consumer Skype, not this discussion forum or many others, not WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter etc.

Highlighted

Why? Because the default font can make deciphering keywords/passwords/site identifiers difficult and error prone.  Just this morning I had to debug a problem for a remote user.  She couldn't find an entry with a sitecode of 'gavabin'.  Turns out the sitecode was actually 'gavabln' and the font she was seeing made it hard to see that was a lower case L instead of an upper case I.

 

I always change my clients to consolas or courier or some other classic, monospace font so that O 0 I l 1 can be told apart.  Can you tell the difference here between that upper case I and the lower case l I just entered?  No?  That is why we want control of our fonts.

Yes I can, by entering it in Teams as code using ``` before the text (or the insert code button). See

 

Capture.PNG

 

If they sent it to me not in code and I really needed to I could open it in the immersive reader and change the font, or more likely I would copy/paste it somewhere else.

 

I'm not really sure I understand your point anyway, wouldn't you just get them to share their screen then you can see what's happening in this kind of scenario?

@Steven Collier 

I would primarily suggest it because the text copied and pasted into teams and the text natively typed into the teams wiki for example aren't the same font and you don't seem able to correct that.  So depending how you copied text in you are stuck with whatever you get.  That seems incredibly short sited and poorly designed.

@Steven Collie  We are developers and prefer monospaced fonts for pasting code and columnar data.   It was our default in SKYPE FOR BUSINESS.   Somewhere the default font is being selected - I want to know how to get at that and change it.

 

Also, if one cuts what one receives, and pastes it into NOTEPAD, the new lines are not set.  One must post it to Word, and then change the font.

Very helpful - this gets me by the problem. However did you figure that out?

@Damien Rosario It's not a problem of users want use "Comic Sans" as default font, the default font was really terrible for Chinese and/or some other country user.

Highlighted

I don't get it either. 
Due to this COVID thing we now have to use Teams. And the biggest problem with the default font is that it has DIFFERENT SIZE OF LETTERS for different languages. This looks so ugly! How the hell can we change this font? I have a bunch of good fonts in my system. And none of them have the abovementioned problem with different letters size.

@John Thompson The letter color is all I want to change in Microsoft Teams as well. My past two messaging apps at work allowed me to change the font color to make it quicker to see what my responses were.

I'd love to know this as well. I was actually looking for stickers. They chose the Worst Font Ever Created; comic sans. Every graphic designer on the face of the planet has agreed to never use it, so how did it happen that they chose that? It's right up there with papyrus.
I'd actually like for a business to be able to push font choice to employees. The designers here would make good decisions, but perhaps the engineers or management would make poor decisions, depending on the company.

@adam deltinger They did the same thing with Visio a few years ago - you couldn't pick your own font, or even change the font, but had to use what they decided was best, Calibri. There's something wrong with a corporate philosophy that allows or forces software teams to conclude that choosing the font users must use is the right course of action.
