Make Word’s Page Setup Changes “Permanent”

Friday, April 21st, 2006 by | Filed Under: MS Office Help, MS Word

Make Word’s Page Setup Changes “Permanent”

Okay, so maybe permanent isn’t the best word to describe this, but would you settle for a default setting?

Do you find that you’re constantly making changes to the Page Setup information in MS Word?

Are these changes the same each time?

Maybe you don’t agree with the default margins or maybe you’re always making adjustments to the header / footer settings.

Whatever changes you frequently make, I’d bet that you’d really like it if Word would just cooperate and keep these changes. I mean, wouldn’t it be nice if you could cut out the repetitious work of making the same changes each time you start a new document?

Yeah, I agree.

The key to making this wish come true has been right there before our eyes the whole time.

Take a look in the bottom left hand corner of the Page Setup window:

Do you see it?

Yep, that’s right. There’s a Default button on the Page Setup window.

Make your changes, click the Default button and voila! The changes will affect the active document and any new documents based on the current template.

With this little trick, you can cross one more thing off the “To Do” list when you begin working on a new document.
