Whenever I start VB6 the form1 font is MS Sans Serif.  Is there a way that I can change this font so that whenever I start up a new project, it will use the font that I have previously set it to?

There is a template directory in both vb5 & vb6. You can put your form there and whenever you add form to your project, you can use your 'template' form.

I found that if create a startup project state that I like I save it as something like startup.vbp and then I create a batch file that simply issues the statement

vb6.exe startup.vbp

and VB loads with that default configuration.  Then I can do a Save-As.
