thank for your answer. 

I found the default font on my
machine/windows 8 is Segoe UI. I´ll check if it is avalaible under other
version of Windows ... 

your suggestion (looping controls) is
interesting, I didn´t know it, but will change all the controls of the
form ... and that is not what I need ... I just want to change the
Lazarus default. So it will change the font of controls using
font.name='Default' in the configuration/object inspector.
