In this case, I use Windows 10 PC, Android, and iPhone. Let’s get started.
How to change the text color in Google Docs
Open the Google Docs document.
Select the text. Remember that the color change is only for the selected text.
Click on the “Text color” icon at the top between “Underline” and “Highlight color.”
Click on the desired color.
Note: To return to the default setting, follow the steps above, but select the color “Black.”
Android or iPhone
Launch the Google Docs app.
Open the document and tap the “pencil” icon at the bottom.
Select the text for which you want to change the color.
Tap the Format icon at the top. On the Text tab, you will find the Text color. Press it.
Select the desired color.
Note: If you want to revert to the default setting, follow the steps above. However, select the color “Black.”
How to change the default text color in Google Docs
The above section shows you the steps to change the text color of an individual document.
If you want to change the default text color, this section is for you.
The following steps relate to the “Normal text.” However, remember that you can also change the default text color for the title, subtitle, and heading with the following steps.
Open a new Google Docs document.
Make sure the one you prefer is selected in the styles drop-down list. In my case, Normal text should be chosen.
Now choose the text color you prefer.
Click on “Format” at the top.
Move the mouse over “Paragraph styles” and then over the same that you’ve chosen earlier. In my case, it’s “Normal Text.”
Click on the “Update” option that you see. In my case, it is the “Update ‘Normal text’ to match” option.
Click “Format” again at the top.
Move the mouse over “Paragraph styles” and then over “Options.”
Click on the “Save as my default styles” option.
That’s it. The default text color for the “Normal text” has been successfully changed.
If you want to revert a particular color change (for instance: Normal text), follow the steps above, but be sure to pick the color “black.”
