Windows 7: Changing the default font from Times New Roman

Changing the default font from Times New Roman

Hi all,

May be a simple fix (I hope!). I want to change the default font for all Word documents and Power Point from Times New Roman to either Arial or Tahoma, but cannot find the command. I'm running Windows 7 and Office 2007.

I did this with XP a couple of years ago without a problem, but cannot find the right button to push!

Any advice greatly appreciated.

So far as Power poiont is concerned, Open the program go to help and search for "Set default fonts for Power Point presentations. It will open chapter and verse on the subject. Too long to copy and paste here.
