  • In the Font group, click Fonts.
  • Select the font, the point size, and any attributes that you want in the Fonts dialog box.
  • Click Default.
  • Click Yes when you receive the following message: “Do you want to change the default font to font name?”
  • This change will affect all new documents based on the NORMAL template.
  • Click OK.
  • Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Word Options.
