Default Font style & type

My Word default type is Times New Roman. Every time I type a letter that's
what I get. Occasionally, I will want to type some documents in another
font and/or size. I know how to format the font but is there a way to
change the default setting if I want to do a number of documents in the same
font?

Yes, but it would change it all the time, from that point
forward, which doesn't sound like what you want?

That's what I'm looking for; a "permanent" change for a week or so then
going back to my standard Times New Roman.

The best idea is to create styles that contain the fonts and sizes you
want, and apply them to the text. The styles can be in the Normal.dot
template so they're available for all documents, or they can be in
specific templates that you use for certain document types.

Jay has given you good advice: the best plan is to create a template with
appropriate styles. To answer the question you *asked*, however, see
