    Permanatly Change Default Font in Word PAD from Calibri to Verdana


    Version 1909 (OS build 18363.901)

    Good morning, Can someone tell if it's possible to change the Default Font in Word Pad to Verdanr Permanently every time I open it' it has reverted back to the Calibri font it's just a hassle setting in it all up with my preferences only to find they have changed back again after I closed the Doc T, I, A Dasha

    It is set within the file, but you can easily do something like this:

    Best answer I could find... I'm sure there's a registry tweak that will do this as well, but in the meantime, you can use a template.

    Here is a really detailed article. Note that it is very old, hopefully this still works.
