Change default slide size setting in MS PowerPoint 2013

How do I change the default slide size in MS PowerPoint 2013.   Right now it is set at 13.333 by 7.5. I would like it to be 11 by 8.5. The wide aspect is fine. I just want the blank default slide to be 11 by 8.5. I am tired of having to change it all the time.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
