Go to Administration > Users > User Preferences.

Make the change to html and then click 'Apply' to force it to everyone (new and already registered). if you don't click Apply, it will be changed only for new users.

Nice, Thanks.

It doesn't work. It appears in the statement that 0 users are affected.

@Urech Daniel It works. "0 users are affected" is because no one has set this preference in their personal profile. Therefore, the default value will be applied. This means without clicking the "apply" button, all current users as well as new users will use the default settings.
