To change the base currency in Magento, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to the Magento backend as an administrator.
  2. Go to the Stores menu and click on Configuration.
  3. In the panel on the left, under General, click on Currency Setup.
  4. In the Currency Options section, set the Base Currency to the currency you want to use as the base currency.
  5. In the Allowed Currencies section, select the currencies you want to allow for use on your store.
  6. Click Save Config to apply the changes.

Note: If you have existing orders with a different base currency, you may need to create a custom script to update the order currency and any associated data. You should also be aware that changing the base currency may affect the prices of your products, as the prices will be converted to the new base currency using the current exchange rates. It is generally recommended to consult with a developer or professional service before making changes to the base currency.
