Word: Change Default Font

Upon installation, Microsoft Word uses the Calibri font and 11 point font size by default. You can change the default line spacing by following the steps below. Keep in mind that this is a machine-specific setting, so you will need to repeat these steps for any new computer that you login to. 

To change the default font: 

  1. Open a new or existing Microsoft Word document. 
  2. Click the [Home] tab > Locate the "Font" group.
  3. From the lower-right corner of the "Font" group, click the small arrow. The "Font" dialog box will open.
  4. Choose the font style and size you would like Word to use by default (e.g., Times New Roman, Size: 12).
  5. Click [Set As Default] > Select "All documents based on the Normal template?" > Click [OK].

Keywords: Personalized font, automatic font, fount, fant, default font, calibri, font.
