Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. When I start-up the computer and select “Microsoft Works Word Processor”, the default font is “Times New Roman” (size 10).

    I confess to a predilection, preference, to using and working-with “Arial” (size 11).

    I have looked for - and failed - to find a way to re-set this de-fault setting for the font.

    Advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I have Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Version 5.1

    For something like five years, I've been re-setting the FONT/SIZE with every new document - and, it was beginning to annoy me.

    Footnote: It works! I’ve just <COPY> and <PASTED> this across, to use the WORKS’ spellchecker, and it all happened just as you said.

    Ah! I am one happy “Trucker”.

    Thank you :)

    All down to Microsoft I'm afraid, so yep, I googled the whole thing. Did you want your shilling back .....?
