Setting a default font in Microsoft Works
Q: When using Microsoft Works on my old computer, I could change the font and text color, save it, and it would be there for the rest of my letters.
On my new computer, I can’t seem to find a way to keep my selected font for new letters. How do I save the font so I don’t have to reset it every time?
A: It sounds like you’re only changing the font and color for your current document. You need to tell Microsoft Works’ word processor that you’re making a permanent change.
To do that, follow these steps:
- Open Microsoft Works, and open a blank document in Microsoft Works Word Processor.
- Click the Format menu, select Font, and choose the font and the font size that you want to use for all new documents.
- On the File menu, click Save As, and then click Template.
- Type a name for the word processor template, click to select the “Use this template for new Word Processor documents” check box, and then click OK.
The next time you open a document in Microsoft Works, you can automatically start typing with your favorite font and color.
