Changing the "normal" style in Microsoft Word is easy and can be done in as little as two minutes.
Create a block of text using the style that you wish to appear as "Normal"--the default font and paragraph style that Word will use whenever you create a new document.
Make sure to set not just the text's font and size, but also the paragraph styling: Select something within the block of text that you just created, right-click it, and then choose Paragraph.

3.Set the line spacing, indentation, and alignment.
4. Next, select some of the finished text, right-click it, and select Styles.
5. Click Update Normal to Match Selection.
6. Finally, to make this style permanent for new documents, in the Word ribbon click Change Styles and Set as Default.
