Best Font for Visual Studio

Fantasque Sans Mono

Fantasque Sans Mono is my choice for the past two years. You need to try it to see how good it is.

A programming font, designed with functionality in mind, and with some wibbly-wobbly handwriting-like fuzziness that makes it unassumingly cool.

It is also opensource and you can find it on GitHub here. (3k+ stars).

A font family with a great monospaced variant for programmers.

How to install new font (windows)

  • Download the font from here
  • Open Fonts directory in windows. (Search for "font" in windows and you will see it as the first option)
  • Open the downloaded zip file, drag and drop the items in the OTF directory to the Fonts.
  • Open Visual Studio settings. Tools > Options > Environment > Fonts and Colors > Choose Fantasque Sans Mono from the font list > OK.

If you have a better suggestion, let me know in the comments.
