Tap Settings to open settings menu that allows you to change your default font.

Now it shows you more menu. Tap Options.

Here it is. To change the default font in OneNote, just choose any kind of font you would like in Default Font menu.

You can choose font the same way you do in Microsoft Word.

Now, change the font size.

That’s it! Now, when you create a new OneNote note/page, you will automatically use the font you set.

But, unfortunately, that option doesn’t change the font on all your notes/pages that have been created. That only applies to the new note/page you create next time.

But, that doesn’t mean you can’t change font on all already-made notes and pages manually. To do that, just select all text that you want to change font (just press CTRL+A) then change the font on Home tab, the same way you do on Microsoft Word.

That’s it! Now the font have changed.

If you use Android, you will notice the notes you change the font size earlier will apply on OneNote in Android.

Unfortunately, OneNote Android doesn’t allow you to change default font for newer note/page yet. You have to change your device’s default font if you want to change the font on OneNote. But in the future though, OneNote will probably make an update that allow you do that.
