  2. Click on the Appearance tab and follow the numbers on the screenshot below. Then click Update. If you want to make changes begin Change the Appearance again until you are satisfied with the look.



If your editor doesn't look like the one above (TinyMCE) you can change it in your Moodle account profile or just use the one you have and hunt for the icons.
