Is there any option available to change the font (style & size both) for VMware web-client interface? By default the font used is Arial and it looks dull and doesn't provide clear interface like thick client.
I am using VMware vSphere version 6.5.0.
I don't think you can change the style/font but you can change the size by using integrated browser function to increase/decrease size. Just hit <ctrl>and<+> to increase or <ctrl>and<-> to decrease.
Thanks for reply.
Zoom in or zoom out the browser is just a workaround. I think the web client UI should have some option to customize its interface or at least set custom fonts and their size.
While not officially supported or recommended, you can actually tweak a lot of settings for the vSphere Web GUI including font sizes, styles and even colors/background images.
To do that you basically need to edit some CSS and jsp files. This page actually explains how to change the font and a background image on the login page for vSphere 6.5
Same technique can be applied to the main CSS/jsp files to change the font used throughout the whole web GUI.
Again, please remember this is totally unsupported by VMware. If you break your Web GUI along the way, you'll probably get little to no support. I suggest taking a backup of your vCenter server before proceeding with any changes.
Thanks for reply. But I am asking for change of fonts of vCenter UI (Inventory, recent objects, tasks, alarms etc) which we see after login. I didn't ask for change of fonts of only login screen. Any idea?
