  • The default Notepad font is Lucida Console, Regular, 10.
  • You can set only one default font, which Notepad will use every time that it opens a file. You cannot set one paragraph in Arial, and another in Times New Roman because the settings are not saved within the text file, but rather in the Windows Notepad program itself.
  • If you want to use more than one font, you should use a more complex word processor such as Wordpad or Microsoft Word.
