Customize Your IDE Font

You can change the font that your IDE uses for menus and related items. To do so, you open the Options dialog from the Tools menu. You first select the Environment node and the Fonts and Colors subnode. At the top of the options for fonts and colors is a drop-down for selecting where you wish to modify the Fonts and Colors (for example, the Text Editor, Output Window, All Text Tool Windows, and more). You can also use this drop down to set the font for the entire IDE to the selection of your choice. Figure 2.38 shows selecting this option (Environment Font) and changing the font from Automatic to Arial Narrow.
