I have been looking a Group Policy settings - and I cannot see how you set the default font!

I am sure I have seen it done. Could somewhere point me to the relevant section of GP where I can see it.

also, I need to do the same with Excel and Outlook

The easiest way to do this is modify the normal template (normal.dotm) found at %AppData%\Microsoft\Templates and deploy it to users when they login with a login script.

I wanted to use GP to set the font - is there any way to do it or will I have to amend the normal.dtm template?

Only this will presumably overwrite any users settings also in normal.dtm

I've never found a group policy option to do this, pretty sure you have to do it with a template.
