How can I change the default settings for all users that log into a computer?  I have a computer lab an I would like to adjust the word settings so that all users that log into any of the computers will have the new settings.

    Assuming you have a Windows Domain with Active Directory, then you can download Templates for every Word-Version right from Microsoft. You can use those templates for creating a special GPO in which you can modify almost every setting in Word (templates for Excel, Outlook an so on are available too). Just Assign this GPO to an OU where all your users are in and the work is done...

    This is a total different thing, i have misunderstood your question...
    The solution I mentioned is for changing settings like default path, which menues are available, add ons,  and so on.
    Your question was about default document settings - sorry if i confused you
