Changing Default Font to a more readable default font.

As we all probably know the default font in Microsoft Word is Calibri, which is not probably the best font used in the business world. This blog guides you through the steps to change the default font to the font of your choice as default. Even though, the original Calibri looks very elegant on screen, it is not readable because it's a "sans-serif" type and not most people's choice.

Here are the steps to make this change:
Press Ctrl-Shift-F to open the Font dialog.
Select the font of choice ( Arial, 12 point)
Click Save as Default, choose "All documents based on the Normal.dotm template"
Click OK.

To insert a different header on the first page of a document than on the rest of the pages, activate the header section on the first page of the document. Double click near the top of the first page to do this.

Make sure that the header is active, you will see a Header & Footer Tools Ribbon Tab at the top of the screen. Select the check box for Different First Page. If you select this box when your First Page Header is active, you will then be able to put one header on the first page and a different header on all the subsequent pages.

You are done.
