Hi, my name is Brian and this is how to type cursive on your computer. So, there's no way to set your font for the entire computer in your system preferences on a MAC. You can't do that system-wide, you have to do that on an app by app basis. So, I'm going to show you how to change the font on a few different apps on your computer. So, Microsoft Word, I have just some font, it's right now it's Helvetica which is standard and you can just the font by going into the drop down box under the font and finding a font that is script; for example Edwardian Script. Now, that is in script. Now, also you can change the standard font for certain apps. Like in Safari, you can go to Safari and then preferences and then you can change the font here. For example, right now it's Arial 16, if I go to select and I select Edwardian Script, it will set the font for Safari, the standard font into Edwardian Script. Now, if you don't have any scripts saved on your computer, you're not going to be able to change the fonts on different apps. So, you can download a script font from this website, This website has all sorts of different free fonts that you can download and install on your computer.
