How to change the font on a Samsung Galaxy: Step-By-Step
Open the Settings app
First, head to your phone’s Settings app – it’s the one with an icon like a gear cog.
Once the app is open, tap on “Display” (which has a green-coloured sun icon next to it) in order to make changes to your phone’s display.
Scroll down to ‘Font size and style’
Now scroll further down the display and tap on the bit that says ‘Font size and style’ in order to make adjustments to the text’s appearance.
Select ‘Font style’, and choose a new font for your device
From the menu that you can see on screen, tap on the option that reads ‘Font Style’ in order to change the look of the text on your phone. Here you can select one of the pre-installed font or download some new ones.
Simply follow this guide again, and select ‘Default’ when you come to select the font style
