Normally, Microsoft Excel 2003 uses a default font of Arial 10-point whenever you create a new spreadsheet. While you can change the current font at any time by clicking on the font and font size pull-downs in the toolbar, if you commonly use a different font you can change the default for future spreadsheets.
1. Click "Tools" - "Options".
2. When the "Options" multi-tabbed dialog box appears, click the "General" tab.
3. Next to "Standard font", click the pull-down to the right to change the default font. Click the pull-down to the right of that to choose the default font size.
4. Click "OK" to close the dialog box.
Press the "print" button on your browser or select "File" - "Print" to print this tip. Then, return to Microsoft Excel 2003 Cell Formatting - Change the Default Font.
