Windows 7: Problems with Default Fonts in Office 2010

Problems with Default Fonts in Office 2010

My computer has Windows 7 Home Premium Operating System, 32 bit system type and I use Office 2010.

Microsoft Office 2010 has an embedded default font "Calibri" which I do not like. I go through the motions of changing the default using the "Options" section in all Programs, i.e. Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, OneNote, etc. Most of the time whatever font I set as default in each program it changes back to Calibri after exiting. I changed the normal.dot file to reflect my new font. I even deleted Calibri from the Fonts directory in Windows 7 but it still shows as the default font. How can that be?
It was DELETED !!! Is there a way to change the default font once and for all? Can someone please help me!

I don't believe that you can change the default font for all modules on a global basis.

However, beginning with Word, here is the procedure:

You might also look at changing/modifying the default 'Style' you use.

Thank you so much, however I have changed the fonts using "Style" and the "Options" section several times. It always works until I close Word. Then it reverts back to Calibri, which is curious since I deleted that font. It just won't go away !
