Default Word will not hold settings, such as font and size of font


I installed Word 2010 on a brand new computer. This was the third installation from the disc I bought. It will not hold any default settings. I've tried many. The most aggravating so far are font, size, line spacing. No response at all.

If it will not hold changes that you are making and you are saving those changes to the template, something is preventing saving changes. The most likely culprit is a poorly-written Add-In program. The ones that have been popping up on the forum for doing this lately have related to bluetooth, but it could be anything. See Enable or disable add-ins in Office programs - Support - Office.com.

One workaround is to directly open the normal template and save your changes there. Do not add any text (including headers, footers, or page numbers) to the normal template. Normal Template in Microsoft Word - How to Open
