A wish was made at lunch.  The wish was to be able to change the default font that Microsft word started with. 
"Down with Times New Roman" 
 
Open Word click Format then Font.
 
 
The following dialog box opens with your default font highlighted.
 
 
Select the font you prefer.
 
 
Click the Default button at the bottom.
 
 
A confirmation alert box pops up....... click yes :)
