Change Font Type, Style and Size in Notepad

Notepad is the main base for text writing in every Microsoft Windows operating system. Before any word processing software that you used, there is good old simple Notepad as stable and fast solution for writing and saving basic urgent text files... Notepad is also an universal tool for many other things (like .bat programming) and among other stuffs you can also set the desired font and its size-style so for the basic text processing you will not need other softwares that costs a lot of money. In order to set the font type in Notepad, use the following tutorial :

Step 1 : Create a new Notepad Text Document (.txt) file by right-clicking somewhere into an empty background space and then from the menu selecting New > Text Document.

IMPORTANT : In the most of cases default Notepad font is Lucida Console with Regular Font Style and 10 Size but sometimes this can be different. Anyway, you can always come back to Lucida Console using above settings if you not like other fonts.
