Change the colors and fonts used for webpages


Internet Explorer lets you pick which fonts and colors are used to display webpages. These settings won't affect webpages that are designed to prevent changes to colors and fonts. If you want to use your color and font choices on all webpages, regardless of whether they've been specified by the website designer, you can override website font and color settings.
