There are 2 types of controls in Excel
The controls available from
1) Forms Toolbar
2) Control Toolbox

The 1st one you cannot cahnge the Text font
The 2nd one you can, via right click then
select properties.
In the properties list look for Font and change
it here.

If your Control toolbox is not visible then
select it via right clicking anywhere on your
commandbar and select Customise.
In the dialog box select ToolBars tab and
look for the Control Toolbox.
