    I am using MS Word 2004, the Mac version, on my Macbook, when I open a new document it has the default page size set at US Legal, 8.5 x 14, I cannot figure out how to change the default to 8.5 x 11, US Letter, I changed it in the printer settings, but everytime I change it in MS Word, I go to File, page setup and it is ok for that document, but if I close and open a new one it goes back.

    How can I change this for good?

    In case anyone needs the answer I finally found out how to change it.


    Solution two: Change the Microsoft Word default template
    If Microsoft Word continues to default to the US Letter size, use the following steps to change the default template:

    1.
    Open Microsoft Word.
    2.
    Click File and then click Open .
    3.
    In the Enable drop-down menu, choose Word Templates .
    4.
    Browse to Users/Username/Documents/Microsoft User Data .
    5.
    Choose Normal .
    6.
    After the document opens, click File .
    7.
    Click Page Setup .
    8.
    Change the Paper Size to the preferred default paper size.
    9.
    Click OK .
    10.
    Click File .
    11.
    Click Save .
