of this tech tip.
First, create a new document based on the Normal template, which Word automatically defaults to every time you launch the program or create a new document.
Then, go to the Home tab. In the Styles section, right-click the Normal box (Control-click on a Mac) and select “Modify.” This will open up the Modify Style dialog box. Once there, choose your preferred font and size.
