Chapter 4. Formatting Your Worksheets > Changing Fonts and Sizes

Changing Fonts and Sizes

When you create a new worksheet and enter data, Excel uses the default font and font size (Arial 10-point type). With this formatting, all the data has the same emphasis and looks the same. If you find this font is too small or if you prefer a different font, you can make a change.

With Excel, you can change the font for the entire worksheet or for only a selected cell or range. Perhaps you have a single word or character in a cell that needs formatting, or maybe you want to use a larger point size for the entire worksheet. The fastest way to change the font and size is by using the Font and Font Size drop-down lists on the Formatting toolbar. However, with this method, you can't preview the font or size before applying it, and you can make only one change at a time. If you want to change font, size, and style all at once, use the Format Cells dialog box.
