Default Font change Office 365 Applications

Hi

Ive looked around online and cannot find any documentation for centrally changing default fonts for office 2016.

Its my understanding that this is completed by changing the normal.dotm template. Would anybody agree with this assumption? My main issue is I'm not too sure of the location of the Normal.dotm template. Is there a way from fathoming this out within any of the office applications.

Thanks

For Outlook, use Stationaries. File -> Options -> Mail -> Stationaries and Fonts. If you want to do it via GPO and also prevent users from choosing another font, follow the instructions here: http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/email/disable-stationery-fonts-using-group-policy/

There's no single setting you can configure across all applications, if it's Word you are interested in, you have to go with the templates.

With Excel you can set the Font in the Excel Options.

Can be done with group policy and the office 2016 admx

Might be wrong though in a previous job I had to undergo exactly what you were after and I'm almost certain it was accomplished with GPO

According to Microsoft you can do it like this (per application):
https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Change-or-set-the-default-font-20f72414-2c42-4b53-9654-d07a92b9294a

Applies To: Word 2016, Outlook 2016, Word 2013, Outlook 2013, Word 2010, Word 2007, Word Starter, Word Starter 2010

1) On the Home tab, click the Font Dialog Box Launcher, and then click the Font tab.

2) Select the options that you want to apply to the default font, such as font style and font size. If you selected text in step 1, the properties of the selected text are set in the dialog box.

3) Click Set As Default, and set the scope of your changes:
* Select This document only?  if you want your changes to apply to only the current document.
* Select All documents based on Normal .dotm template? if you want your changes to apply to any document based on the Normal template.

4) Click OK to apply your changes.
