Change the Window and Desktop Font Size in Ubuntu

Ubuntu logo

Something that bugs me in Ubuntu is the default text size for window titles and desktop icons – it’s far too big. How do you change it?

Well, in Ubuntu 8.10, you browse to the System -> Preferences -> Appearance programme, and on the Fonts tab, you should be able to set the font size to your liking. I shrunk the font down to 8. I think this is pretty readable and saves a bit of space on screen.

Of course, while you’re in the Appearance programme, you can modify the actual display fonts for your screen and whether they’re bold or italic.

There you go, another quick tip. Hope this helps some of you out.
