Changing wordpad defaults

Is there any way to change the wordpad default font from Calibri to Arial? I realize it can be set upon startup but I don't like having to do that.

Thanks for any assistance with this.

That helps for new documents nicely but not for existing files. Guess I'll look for some other editing program.

Thanks, Tom
