How to Change Fonts on Skype

Change Font for Skype Instant Message (IM)

You can change the style and size of the displayed font for Skype’s Instant Message (IM). Here we describe how to change it for both Windows and Mac.

Changing the font for Windows

  1. Sign into Skype
  2. Select “Tools” “Options…” from the menu bar.
  3. Click “IM & SMS”,and select “IM appearance”
  4. Click “Change font.”

You can choose a font, style and size. The font color is set by default, and you cannot change it. After changing the settings, click “OK” and “Save” to apply the new settings.
The change of the font is applied only to IM displayed on your Skype account. Messages you send to your contacts are received with your contact’s own font settings.

Changing the font for Mac

Skype for Mac OS X can change the size of the displayed font for Skype’s Instant Message (IM).

  1. Open Conversation on Skype.
  2. Go to “View” of the main menu, and select “Make Text Bigger”, “Make Text Normal Size” or “Make Text Smaller.”

In this way, your font size of the IM for all conversations can be changed.

*As of now, Skype for Mac OS X cannot change the font style.
