Say Goodbye to Calibri - Hello Aptos!

Do you use Microsoft Office?

If so, there's a change coming with the default font.

Microsoft has announced that it is replacing its default font, Calibri. 

This change comes after 15 years of Calibri being the default font for Microsoft Office. 

The new default font is called Aptos.

But here's a Cool Tip:  You can already ready use it since it's currently called Bierstadt

The decision to choose Aptos as the new default font was based on user feedback, with Aptos striking a balance between professionalism and relatability.

The new font will gradually become the default across all Microsoft 365 apps and services for all users over the coming months. 

However, Calibri will still be pre-pinned at the top of a new font menu alongside its predecessors, Times New Roman and Arial.
