Word – change the default formatting for new documents permanently and quickly

Word default documents are bland. Unexciting layouts, boring fonts, and most annoying that spacing between paragraphs.  You don’t have to settle for these default settings, you can personalize Word so that every time you start a new document it uses your preferred fonts and paragraph settings.

The trick is saving your preferences into the Normal document template, and you can do that automatically.default font

  1. Press Ctrl+Shift+F to open the Font dialog box.
  2. Choose your preferred font and font size.
  3. Click the Set As Default button and in the resulting dialog box, choose the All documents based on the Normal template
  4. Save your changes.

You can do the same with paragraph formatting. Right-click any text and choose Paragraph from the shortcut menu to open the Paragraph Formatting dialog box.  Choose your spacing options and click on Set As Default button.  No more unwanted spacing between paragraphs.
