In Word 2007, you can just write click on style Normal, choose "Modify", change the font size, and then select "Home>Change Styles>Set As Default".

  1. Find out where the .dot or .dotx file is located.
  2. Start MS Word, then open the template. (note: not an instance of the template)
  3. Modify the Normal style.
  4. Save.
