A font is perhaps the least attention-seeking, but one of the most important factors in consuming and displaying text content.
A font decided whether your text content will look clean and beautiful or ugly and repelling. Your Windows system displays text elements in a specific font. Various applications use different fonts to emphasize various types of contents.
