How do I change the font of my instant messages in Skype for Windows desktop?

This article is also available for:

To change the font of your instant messages:

  1. Sign in to Skype.
  2. In the menu bar, select Tools > Options.
  3. Click IM & SMS and select IM appearance.
  4. Click Change font.

You can choose which font you’d like to use, and set the font style and size. The font color is set by default and cannot be changed. When you have selected your font settings, click OK, then Save to apply the new settings.

Changing your font will only change how instant messages are displayed in your Skype account. Any messages you send to contacts will be received in the font that they have set for their Skype account.
