Default Font in Word

 

Dear Computer Lady,

One  quick question. When I go into Word to either type something or copy & paste something, The font size is always on 10. That means I always have to change it because I don’t like it that small. Is there a way to set it to the size font that I want so it stay that way every time I open Word?

Thanks so much for your time, Ron

 


Dear Ron,

You can change the default font size in Microsoft Word.

In Word 2003 follow these directions.

1. Open Microsoft Word to a blank document. I like to press Ctrl & A (the shortcut for select all) but in a new, blank document it is not really necessary.

2. Click on “Format” and then “Font” in the menu bar. This will open a window for changing the font type, style and size.

3. Change the font size and any other changes you might want to make. 

4. In the lower, left hand corner of the window, there is a button that says “Default…” click on this button. 

5. A window will appear asking you if you want to change the default font. It will also tell you that this will affect all new documents based on the NORMAL template. Click “Yes”.

 

For Word 2007, These are the steps to follow:

 

1. Open Microsoft Word to a new, blank document.

2. On the “Home” (1) ribbon, select the font and size that you prefer.

3. Click on the small arrow (2) in the bottom, right corner of the “Font” section of the ribbon to open the “Font” dialog Box.

4. In the lower, left hand corner of the window, there is a button that says “Default…” click on this button. 

5. A window will appear asking you if you want to change the default font. It will also tell you that this will affect all new documents based on the NORMAL template. Click “Yes”.

 

Now, all new word documents will have the font size that you prefer.
