Change the Steam Font Size

I recently upgraded to the latest Steam beta, and discovered that Valve increased the size of the font in the chat windows. Opinions of the font change vary, but I personally can’t stand it.


Here’s how to fix it (discovered in the steam forums).

Go into your steam directory, and open

resource/styles/steam.styles

The key here to find the sections that pertain to chat windows, and change their font-size parameters to 14 (if you want the original steam font size). After making the changes, restart Steam and you’ll be good to go.

    friends_chat_text
    {
        textcolor="text"
        selectedtextcolor="TextentrySelected"
        SelectedBgColor="focus"
        font-size=14
    }

    friends_chat_text_self
    {
        textcolor="ChatOwnTextColor"
        selectedtextcolor="TextentrySelected"
        selectedbgcolor="focus"
        font-size=14
    }

    friends_chat_history
    {
        textcolor="ChatDialog.HistoryColor"

        font-size=14
    }
