I'm using Photoshop 23.5.0 and cannot for the life of me figure out how to change the default font for the type tool.  Somehow it's gotten set on a font I rarely use set at a ridiculously small size.  How do I reset it to something more manageable????

Open your workspace with no document open (go to Window/Workspace).

Select the Type Tool.

Choose your font.

 

The default has to be set without an active open document.

Tried that and it's not working.  I tried setting it then quitting/restarting.  Nope.  Tried setting it and applying it to a new document, but not saving.  Nope.  Tried setting it, applying it to a new document and saving that document.  Still not working.
