Hello,

you can set up an Excel Workbook with the fonts and settings you prefer, then save it as a template in your Excel XLSTART folder. Call the file Book1.xls or Book1.xlsx, depending on your Office version. The location of that folder differs with your operating system. In Windows XP it is

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART

Then, when you click File > New, this file will be used as the template.

It would help if you can detail your Office version when you ask questions.

cheers, teylyn

If in Excel 2010, go to File > Options > General. On the right-side pane under the When creating new workbooks heading, you can make such (template) changes here.

aminbaik,

Use the suggestion I posted above. Use a template in the XLSTART folder.

With a template, you can set more than just the font. You have many more possibilities of customising your default workbook appearance.
