What's this font called?

  Bonzy 16:44 19 Dec 2003

Hello Folks.
My word processor is MS Word. I want to change the default font from Times New Roman to one that looks exactly(or alomost exactly) like a traditional type-writer font. I want my pc-typed text to look like it's been type-written. What font should I make default? Thanks in advance?

I think I know what you mean, the misplaced, semi legible type. If that's the case then click here

As VoG says courier is the standard typewriter font, but it is not proportionately spaced so a letter i will take the same amount of space as the letter w etc...

Why not have a look at the fonts in your Fonts folder and see which one is closest to your requirements?

Just type Fonts into Run (Start>Run) and click on each font to see what it looks like.

A panel with various point sizes of each font example plus numerals will appear in turn.

It was the first link that came up in Google.

I'm confused [email protected]@m. Are you the ex box tick Graham?
