Switch installation

I have now discovered that the lighting system in my detached garage is not done properly. The power comes in the switch boxes, the switch is installed in the commen white wire. Should I change all of these?

Are you sure the power comes into the switch. It is common to have a white wire on the switch if the power comes into the light. How many wires are in the switch box ans what are they connect to?
If the switch is in the neutral then it should be changed.
