Default Where is the Format feature in Wordpad?

I went to the Microsoft Answers website that explains about the Wordpad program. It describes going to the Format function to establish your settings for fonts, etc. My Wordpad program shows only Home & View tabs, & I don't see a Format tab or feature available, altho the font window shows. But I want to made it a default setting for my document(s).



My thanks for any ideas.

You haven't said which article you read, but WordPad on Windows 7 only offers commands for font settings on the Home tab.
