Yes. Modify the style is to right click on it, Change the Font, Click on the radio Button "New Documents based on this template" and OK.

You may need to save the empty document and then delete it after.

The easiest way for a small change like this is make the font change in the Normal Style and then save the Normal Style.

I did this and use Arial 12 point as default. This works fine.

open a new document, change the font to whatever you want, and save the file under
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates

Open in new window

replace the current Normal.dot file. Normal .not is the master file for Microsoft word

I'm not finding anything listed under Style Management to change the default font.  I want it to be Arial 12 pt for all future documents.

It's not listed under it, you have to right click on it using the mouse and then click modify.

Thank you Ryan, and good luck with Fonts.

Another thing I did in the Normal Style was to set line spacing to Single.  I do an extra line space manually if I need.
