Mac OS X Font Guide

author alang

In this guide, you will be able to change the default Windows XP (Home Edition, Professional, any version of XP will do), to match the fonts of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger.
Step 1: Right-Click on your desktop, select “Properties” and then “Apperance”.

Step 2: You must have ClearType on, or else it wont look as good. Click on “Effects”. and tick the box that says “Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts”. Then in the drop down box below, select “ClearType”.

Press OK, then Apply. And then next, select Advanced from the Apperance section.

Step 3: In the drop down box (it says Desktop), select Icon.

Step 4: In the drop down box, select a Mac OS X font (if you don’t have one, just just download them from the link below) and then select B for bold. Press OK and then Apply.

Here are the fonts you may use with this guide (The best font to use with this guide is probably “LucidaMacBold”): http://www.osx-e.com/downloads/misc/macfonts.html
