    If you want all your columns of a Matrix to be Text Boxes, you can change this by clicking on the gear-shaped icon of the Matrix, clicking Show Properties, and changing Input Type to Text Box.

    If you want to have only one column in a Matrix of the type Text Box, and other columns of some other type, that is not currently possible with a Matrix field.

    You may want to try our Configurable List widget, which allows for multiple kinds of input fields per line. (manual: How to Add a Widget to your Form)
