In the first method, press the "Down Arrow" button on the right of the Font icon (as shown in the graphic on your left) which will give you a drop down list of all available fonts. This icon can be found in the Formatting Toolbar. Select a Font from this list before starting to type the word, phrase or paragraph. The selected font will be active till you change to another font.
