I want to change the font to Times New Roman or something similar. I already tried

    Hello there, welcome to the site. It's much better to use the code sample markdown (highlight the code and hit Ctrl + k or use the button (the one like {})). This will give proper syntax highlighting, display linebreaks and white space and generally be a lot more reader friendly. Also, it's always a + if you include a full MWE (Minimal Working Example) rather than just snippets, although it isn't such a big deal here, but it still would have been nice to have a testable document

Imho the best is to switch to xelatex or lualatex:

%utf8 encoded!
\setmainfont{Times New Roman}

You can use tempora. I recommend switching to UTF-8 rather than ISO-8859-7, in any case.
