In 2007 Microsoft Office switched it’s default from Times Roman to Calibri & default fonts can always be set by users as desired. Microsoft is now looking at 5 new fonts & requesting public votes and input on a default font for a future release of Office
It’s not often that Microsoft changes the default font for its software, but that time has come for Office, and the company wants your help choosing the new default. As the Microsoft Design Team explains, the default Office font used to be Times New Roman before that was replaced in 2007 with Calibri. The five new fonts are Tenorite, Bierstadt, Skeena, Seaford, and Grandview. All will be available in the font menu for Office, but only one can be the default, and Microsoft is asking everyone to have their say via social media. Whichever font is most popular will be the one all Office users see (unless they change the default).
