Can I Change The Inbox Font in Microsoft Outlook?

I have this user who just got upgraded to a new laptop. When he logged in for the first time and opened Outlook, he was shocked. He said the fonts were way to small (Apparently he is as blind as a bat, or just likes larger fonts). Anyway, he called me to fix it.

If you run into the same thing, here is what you do in both Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007:

Outlook 2003:

  1. Click on View > Arrange By > Current View > Customize Current View
  2. Click on the ‘Other Settings’ button
  3. Click on the Column Font, Row Font and AutoPreview buttons to change your fonts
  4. Click OK, then OK again, your fonts should now be changed in your inbox list.

Outlook 2007:

Note: Microsoft made this a little more intuitive in this version

  1. Click on View > Current View > Customize Current View
  2. Click on the ‘Other Settings’ button
  3. Click on the Column Font, Row Font and Auto Preview buttons to change your fonts
  4. Click OK, then OK again, your fonts should now be changed in your in-box list.

I hope this helps some of you out there. If this doesn’t work for you there are some alternatives such as glasses, contacts or even lasik surgery. Good luck!
