Changing font default in Word

By kasia_p ·
Is there a way to default font in MS Word? Every time document is opened, it defaults to 'Calibri'. Can this default be changed to other (as opposed to always having have to change it manually)?

But for the full directions you should have told us which version of Word you are using. Different Versions have different ways to do this.

Const wdStyleNormal = -1

sTargetfont = "Arial"
iTargetSize = 11

Set oWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")
oWord.visible = False
Set oDoc = oWord.NormalTemplate.OpenAsDocument

sOriginalFont = oDoc.Styles(wdStyleNormal).Font.Name
iOriginalSize = oDoc.Styles(wdStyleNormal).Font.Size

oDoc.Styles(wdStyleNormal).Font.Name = sTargetFont
oDoc.Styles(wdStyleNormal).Font.Size = iTargetSize
oDoc.Close

Why you want to run scripts if you can simply change the settings permanently for default as mentioned in previous posts.

Simple (without any hysterical punctuation)

by neilb@uk In reply to why!!!???

because you can use it in a login script to apply the change across a company. You can do it in a GPO as well but it's nice to have different ways to do things.

You know, you don't HAVE to use the script. I merely offer it as an option.

Have a nice day.

And calm DOWN!!!!
