Font chữ mặc định win 10

Calibri, we hardly knew ye. Microsoft’s mặc định fonts for all its Office products (và built-in apps lượt thích WordPad) is on its way out and the company now needs your help picking a new one. Let’s judge the options!

You probably don’t think much about Calibri, if you think about fonts at all, but that’s a good thing in this context. A default font should be something you don’t notice & don’t feel the need to lớn change unless you want something specific. Of course the switch from Times New Roman back in 2007 was controversial — going from a serif mặc định lớn a sans serif mặc định ruffled a lot of feathers. Ultimately it proved to lớn be a good decision, & anyway TNR is still usually the default for serif-specified text.

To be clear, this is about defaults for user-created stuff, like Word files. The fonts used by Microsoft in Windows & other official brand things is Segoe UI, & there are a few other defaults mixed in there as well. But from now on making a new document in an Office product would default khổng lồ using one of these, và the others will be there as options.

Replacing Calibri with another friendly-looking universal sans serif phông will be a considerably less dramatic change than 2007’s, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have opinions on it. Oh no. We’re going to lớn get inlớn it. Unfortunately Microsoft’s only options for seeing the text, apart from writing it out in your own 365 apps, are the tweet (doesn’t have sầu all the letters) or some colorful but not informative graphic presentations. So we (và by we I mean Darrell) made our own little specimen to judge by:

You may notice Grandview is missing. We’ll get lớn that. Starting from the top:

Calibri, here for reference, is an inoffensive, rather narrow fonts. It gets its friendly appearance from the tips of the letters, which are buffed off lượt thích they were afraid kids might run into them. At low resolutions like we had in 2007 this didn’t really come across, but now it’s more obvious and actually a little weird, making it look a bit like magnetic fridge letters.

Bierstadt is my pick & what I think Microsoft will piông xã. First because it has a differentiated lowercase l, which I think is important. Second, it doesn’t try anything dễ thương with its terminals. The t ends without curling up, and there’s no distracting tail on the a, ahy vọng other things — sadly the most common letter, lowercase e, is ugly, like a chipped theta. Someone fix it. It’s practical, clear & doesn’t give sầu you a reason to lớn piông xã a different phông. First place. Congratulations, designer Steve Matteson.

Tenorite is my backup pichồng, because it’s nice but less practical for a mặc định font. Geometric sans serifs (look at the big fat “dog,” all circles) look great at medium kích cỡ but small they tover khổng lồ make for weird, wide spacing. Look at how Bierstadt makes the narrow & wide letters comparable in width, while in Tenorite they’re super uneven, yet both are near the same total length. Also, no, we didn’t mess with the kerning or add extra spaces to lớn the over in “This is Tenorite.” That’s how it came out. Someone fix it! Second Place.

Skeena, apart from sounding lượt thích a kind of trùm cuối you fight in an RPG, feels lượt thích a throwbaông chồng. Specifically lớn Monaco, the font we all rethành viên from early versions of MacOS (like System 7). The variable thickness và attenuated tails make for an interesting look in large type, but small it just looks awkward. Best e of the bunch, but something’s wrong with the g, maybe. Someone might need lớn fix it. Third place.

Seaford is an interesting one, but it’s trying too hard with these angular loops & terminals. The lowercase k & a are horrifying, like broken pretzels. The j looks like someone kicked an i. The d looks lượt thích it had too much to lớn eat và is resting its belly on the ground. And don’t get me started on the bent bars of the italic w. Someone fix it. I like the extra strong bold & the g actually works, but this would really bug me khổng lồ use every day. Fourth Place.

Grandview didn’t render properly for us. It looked lượt thích Dingbats in regular, but was fine in bold & italic. Someone fix it. Fortunately I feel confident it won’t be the next mặc định. It’s not bad at all, but it’s inhuman, robotic. Looks like a terminal fonts no one uses. See how any opportunity there is for a straight line is taken? Nice for a hình ảnh — feels strong structurally — but a paragraph of it would look like a barcode. Use it for H2 stuff. Last place.

So what should you “vote” for by tweeting hard at Microsoft? Probably it doesn’t matter. I’m guessing they’ve sầu already picked one. Bierstadt is the smart piông chồng, because it’s good in general while the others are all situational. If they would only fix that damn e.
