Amending Word style pre-set

Using Office 2007, whenever I open a new document it sets the style to Normal, but I want it to set the style to No spacing. Yes, I know I simply have to click a single key on the home ribbon, but my boss wants this to happen automatically on her PC. How can I amend this, please.

You could do something like I have done is open a new document do all the alterations you want then use "save as" give it a title save it to the desktop or somewhere. Then when the document is opened you are good to go, remembering to save it as something else once you have completed the doc.

I have one doc set up with a certain personal details,address and the like also spacing/font etc has been set.Other docs, templates I believe they are called, set up differently, but all kept in a folder on the desktop for ease of use.

You just need to amend the Normal Template, and then al new documents will open with those settings

Here's how
