Changing Font size in Outlook 2007

Q: Changing Font size in Outlook 2007

I have just installed Microsoft Outlook 2007 and some of the column fonts are kinda small. From left to right I have the 3 columns Mail, Inbox, and To Do.
I can change the fontsize in the Inbox column so I can read the emails ok but I can't seem to change the size of the Mail column fonts that has the heading Favorite Folders followed below by inbox, sent items, outbox on down. Same thing with the To Do column where the calendar and other notes are. The font size is just too small within the column.
Someone know how to change the size of the fonts in those columns? I tried going to
VIew> Current View> Customize Current View> Other Settings> Column Fonts but still they stay the same small size when I change them from a 8 font to a 13 font

Thanks to all that response

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

What version of Outlook. From 2007 back it can't be done. I'll try on what you're using. If you decide to do this: Start>Run>desk.cpl>Display Properties>Appearance>Advanced>Click Icon in the > list>Choose Font and Size. You will now have a large Folder List as desired. Unfortunately everything in your computer will also be larger. Since I don't know your reasons, it might be that you'd prefer this.

When replying to a message, the font size is huge! And going Tools > Options > Mail Format > Stationary and Fonts and modifying the values there doesn't change anything. I've adjusted the font size in Windows XP SP2 to Normal and still no go. The font size also differs in the contacts' info page. That is, it's one size in the name, address, etc fields and different in the Notes section. Any idea how to change the defaults short of re-installing the program?

I am running Outlook 2007 in Windows 7 Home Premium.

A:my font keeps changing size on it's own

I have just purchased an HP 15 Touchscreen two days ago AND IT IS DRIVING ME MAD As I am typing a document, the font is continually minimising to the smallest font possible AND the screen splits into two and four.   Additionally, my e-mails now will only type in the most enormous font - say 40 so that I am only able to see one line of typing on a screen.   Whilst all this is happening, my toolbar has not altered at all and still features my Font Size 11 that I always use.

A:Changing font size... not the icon

If changing the Display resolution isn't working (Control Panel - Appearance and Personalization - Display - Screen Resolution "Make text and other items larger or smaller") isn't doing it, Windows IE 8 has a tab in the lower right corner to jack up the resolution in the browser. For sites that have small text on parts of them, you can jump the resolution from 125% to 150, or better.

Here's another suggestion from Dwarf, in an earlier thread:

"Try this. Click Tools and Internet Options. On the General tab, under Appearance, click Accessibility. In the Formatting section, click to check (place a tick) the option Ignore font sizes specified on webpages and then click OK twice."

In WinXP, there was an option in the display settings where I could increase the font DPI. This ONLY increased the windows program fonts and affected little else. So the text under the icons was small, as was the text in various dialog boxes. However, it would have NO effect whatsoever on web pages. Images were unchanged, fonts were unchanged.

Is this possible in Windows 7? I want to see web pages at their original resolution and change them individually if I want to.

Is there a way by which I can change the font type and size across Win 7 and all the programs/ apps (including IE9 RC) that are on my machine?


A:Changing Font size/ type globally in Win 7

You're welcome to try all of the items in my list of methods to change fonts. You can pick and choose multiple settings, to see what works best for you.

1. This is the one of the main setting tools for setting various locations of Windows font sizes. Right-click on the Desktop and go to Personalize, Window Color and Appearance. Click on Advanced, and in the drop-down menu, select the item that controls the location where you wish to change the font size. (Note: the last one, Window, does not have an option to control font size.)

2. DPI - Right click on Desktop, Personalize, On Personalization Page, go to left column to: Adjust Font size ? DPI, DPI Scaling: Click on Large scale (120 DPI), and click Apply.

3. Screen Resolution: Right-click on the Desktop, choose Screen Resolution, click on the down-arrow at the end of the Resolution box, and pick the desired resolution. Check OK.

4. Display: Right-click on the Desktop, select Personalize, then Display. From the 3 settings: Small, Medium, Large, if screen defaults to Medium (125% size for font and images) and that?s too large, use Small for 100% size (aka ?normal?)

5. At the lower right hand corner of every IE web page, there?s a Zoom control that lets you increase the size of every web page, and it stays at that Zoom setting for every page until/unless you change it.

6. Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools, Internet Options, General, Accessibility, Select Ignore font sizes specified on web pages. Click OK, then Apply, then OK.

7. Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, uncheck all three:
Reset text size to Medium for new windows and tabs, and
Reset text size to Medium while Zooming, and
Reset Zoom level to 100% for new windows and tabs

8. Open Internet Explorer, click the Page button, click Text Size, and then select the size you want i.e. Large (Largest may be too large).

9. Ease of Access Center ? Go to either: Control Panel, All Control Panel Items, Ease of Access Center, Make Your Computer Easier to Use, Explore All Settings, and click on: Make this computer easier to see (Optimize Visual Display). OR go to Control Panel, and Explore all settings. Under the following heading, Make things on the screen larger, select: Change the size of text + icons. This takes you to the dpi settings screen.

10. If you have a scroll wheel on your mouse, use command/ctrl + your scroll on a web page to increase the font size.

11. MS Office apps have a Zoom slider at the lower right hand corner of every page, that lets you increase the size of every Office app page, and it stays at that Zoom setting until/unless you change it.

12. MS Word templates: In the Ribbon or QuickAccess Bar select Styles, Normal, and when the little arrow appears, select Modify. Under Formatting you can change the default font size (12) to whatever size you wish. At the bottom of the screen select Only in this documents OR New documents based on this template. Click OK. You can change this font size setting for any/all other MS Word templates as well.

13. In IE and FireFox (for current use ? not permanent): press Ctrl and the + key to increase screen size. To reduce screen size press Ctrl and the ? key. (To restore screen size to 100% press Ctrl and 0.)

14. FireFox (permanent setting): go to Tools, Options, Content, and on that screen set the new default text size that you wish. Then, click Advanced and there are additional default text size settings. Plus, in the box that says "Minimum text size" select None, and down below, UNcheck the box that says "allow pages to choose their own fonts instead of my selections above."

15. Magnifier ? To Magnify Entire Page: Start, Search pane, and type: magnifier. When it comes up click the plus (+) sign. The entire page will magnify. OR go to: Control Panel, All Control Panel Items, Ease of Access Center, Make Your Computer Easier to Use, Start Magnifier.

Is there a way to change the default font size of the Arabic font of choice in IE? I see where I can choose which font, but I don't see an option for its size, other than changing all fonts. Roman letters appear much larger than Arabic and to enlarge all to accomodate Arabic makes the Roman letters huge!

The alternative might be to locate an Arabic font that is inherently larger and add that to the list of options, but I don't know what font that would be nor how to add it to the list in IE8.

There has to be a way. Anyone have suggestions?

Good day.

I wish to know if there is a way to change the font size/style (bold, etc.) of the icon labels ONLY on the desktop screen.

I've tried the Control Panel method (Appearance & Personalization -> Display) that allows me to change the fonts for 'ICONS'. However, this option also changes the appearance of fonts in the directories/filenames, which is not what I want.

E.g. Labels on the desktop with size 12 and bold. Fonts in folders: size 9 and UNbolded (default style).

various sizes inbetween without her doing anything.

What's going on and how to stop that?

For reasons that escape me, Outlook Express is changing my default font from Arial 10 (my selection under Tools/Option/Compose) to Arial 12. I do not have any stationary selected to override the font default. This is driving me nuts and I've never had it happen before and don't know why it is happening now.

Any help appreciated.

I'm using outlook 2007 and am facing a problem in viewing fonts properly in the body of the message. Whenever I get a mail in a regional language, it appears properly in the subject field only, where as in the body, it appears like small boxes. Am sure there is a fix to this.

I have a macro that creates a Calendar Event for selectedcontacts, and in the body of the Calendar Event, it shows words from certainfields of each Contact selected.

So for example, the field of the Contacts which is theFullName of each Contact, the full name of the Contact shows up as to eachContact selected.

Is there a way to add to the macro so that the words comingfrom the FullName field can be designed as a font that would be Times New Roman 14, Color Blue, Bold andUnderlined Bold? And it's not beselecting the words and changing font…it is simply automatic when it shows upin the Body field.

So there is the standard code lines that come with it, and here is the basic code lines that does what I saidabove :

Dim strDynamicDL2 As String

strDynamicDL = strDynamicDL & objItem.FullName &(";")

With itmAppt.Body

itmAppt.Body = strDynamicDL2

Somehow in typing an email I have accidentally changed the font size as displayed on the screen so it is too small to read easily. It is only on the outgoing email, incoming emails and all other Office fonts display as normal.

The actualy font size chosen (Arial 12) is still the same, it is just the display that has shrunk (to about 50%), presumably from a keyboard shortcut that was used accidentally.

Can someone please tell me how to get it back to 100% before I go blind?

Windows Vista, Office 2007

I've been getting weird font characters substituted for apostrophes, periods, quotation marks and triple periods when sending Outlook emails. Word is the editor. Here's an example:

Sent text:
“and that’s the truth”…and a little more

Received text:
“and that's the truth”…and a little more

I've read this may be a Word Auto-Correct and/or ASCII vs. UTF-8 issue. However, I have not been able to figure out how to correct it. I've been turning Word/Outlook features on and off for days without fixing the problem. It's driving me nuts! Word's Auto-Correct exceptions does not allow punctuation marks to be input as "exceptions", only words. Can you offer any advice? Thanks.

I wondering if anyone can help me with this. When I receive new mail messages (forwards or not) sometimes the fonts are to small for me to read. What I've been doing is copying/pasting into Word, but that's a waste of time. I'm fairly new to Outlook 2007, but I can't see a way to increase the font within a new mail message. If I'm sending mail I have the option, but for some reason it's not where I need it, that I can find. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it.

The sender has sent the message to you with these size fonts.
You can view all your messages in plan text though (instead of Rich Text Format) but then you will lose any other font style too.

Look through the settings of Outlook to change to plain text, or contact the sender back, and ask for a larger font size in new messages.

If you open a contact and look at the Notes section which is in the lower left, it isn't readable. The font is set to size 12. If the font is changed to size 72 it is finally readable.

Changing to a different font, like Times or Arial doesn't matter - size 72 is required to make it readable. 72 should be huge, but it it's just about the size of the text in this post.

What's going on? There are hundreds of contacts with Notes and we don't want to have to resize the font in every single one of them to fix this.

A:Outlook 2007 doesn't remember window size

Hi, victord66!

Try maximizing, then closing it and re-opening. After re-opening it should come up as full screen (maximized). Then restore down and size it to the way you want it. Next time you open it, it should retain that window size.

If you want it to be maximized (full screen), always close it when it's maximized. If you want it to be a particular window size, always close it when it's at that window size and location.

This works for almost all application windows.

If that doesn't work, we'll have to look at the properties of the shortcut you use to start Outlook. We'll save that for later, however, as I doubt you changed any of those settings, right?

Hey everyone! Long time no see!

Okay, so a friend of my dad told him that he used to see the folder icons and labels in the left pane of Outlook 2007 in a bigger font/size before switching to a new computer with Windows 7. Obviously, we all know that upgrading Windows won't change font sizes that are coded into independent programs, so I'm thinking that maybe his old computer was running at a lower resolution. Anywho, my dad's friend asked my dad to ask me this question, and since I don't use Office 2007 anymore, I need to ask you: is there a way to change the size of the folder icons and labels in the left pane of Outlook 2007, without changing the size of anything else?
