If you find yourself changing the same font settings over and over in your Microsoft Word documents, you can save yourself time by changing the default font in the Normal template. Once you do so, the default font settings will be applied automatically to any new documents that you create.
To Set the Default Font for New Microsoft Word Documents
- Create or open a new Word document.
Click the Font dialog launcher on the Home Ribbon.
Select the font settings that you want applied to all new documents.
- Click the Set as Default button.
When the dialog box appears, click the radio button next to All documents based on the Normal.dotm template.
