I really like the default font in Mathematica 10. So I would like to use it for my other applications. I tried to search for the name of the font, only found that a lot of people is talking on how to change it to another font.

Anybody knows what's the name of this default font?

    $\begingroup$ System`$DefaultFont gives {Courier,10.}; is this what you need? $\endgroup$ – kglr Jan 29 '15 at 10:13

  • $\begingroup$ @kguler Yes! This font looks great in Mathematica, but not so well in other applications. (Maybe it's subjective to my opinion.) Good to know the System command. Thank you! $\endgroup$ – Nick Jan 29 '15 at 11:50
  • $\begingroup$ actually you don't need to use the context name for the ``System``` context, $DefaultFont is suficient. $\endgroup$ – kglr Jan 29 '15 at 11:59

    $\begingroup$ I don't think you can trust $DefaultFont; it's been obsolete for a long time. $\endgroup$ – m_goldberg Jan 29 '15 at 12:27
