MS Excel Default Font Fun

Do you constantly find yourself changing the font size or type in Excel worksheets?

Is it getting annoying to repeat yourself time after time after time?

I bet a few of you even tried looking in the Format menu for something equivalent to the Font choice found in MS Word.

Didn’t find it, did you?

Nope, that’s because it’s not there.

You can find font choices under the Format menu, Cells choice, but unfortunately, that doesn’t contain a default button, so it only changes the currently selected cells.

So, now what?

Well, you’ll be happy to know that it’s possible. It all depends on where you look. (Wish you’d known that before you spent all that time looking for the right place? Yeah, me too).

What you really need is the Tools menu, Options choice.

Next, you’re looking for the General tab.

See it in the middle?

Yep, that’s it, right where it says “Standard font.

Use the pull down lists to select the font name and size, then click OK.

Excel will need to be restarted in order for the change to take effect, but for the most part it’s, as my nephew would say, “All done.”

Nope—that’s because it’s not there.

You can find font choices under the Format menu, Cells choice—but unfortunately, that doesn’t contain a default button so it only changes the currently selected cells.

Next you’re looking for the General tab.

Yep—that’s it—right where it says “Standard font”.
