in Word 2007 when I click on Mailings>Labels it comes up with a default of Microsoft labels and I want to change it to Avery US Letter and if possible have it highlight 5160 under that.  Is there a way to change or add a default label?

    the last link doesn't work and this talks about changing the label defaults for a specific mail merge document not the default in Word itself for all new templates.

    Open Word and click on Mailings tab.  Then click on Labels.  The envelopes and labels window will open.  Click on the Label Tab and click options.  Change the label vendors to Avery US Letter and select 5160 and click okay.  The values should remain the defaults until you change it.

    This works, you just have to print the labels first and then it retains the label setting
