What is the way to change the way the align environment numbers the equations? enter image description here

Say I want to change the (1) to a (I) or a (A)

    That is not really something align does, but all the eqn giving envs. Is it only this particular one or do you want all eqn numbers like that? And BTW welcome

You can use the \newtagform and \usetagform from mathtools. Here are a few samples:

\usepackage{fourier, erewhon}



a = b + c 
d = e + f

x = y + z

u = v + w
