Is it possible to change the default font MS Word from the set default (11) to something bigger?

  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.

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".
