Increase text sizes of Outlook 2007

Is there a simple way to just increase all of the onscreen text fonts in Outlook 2007. I see that there are views that can be defined but I wanted to just globally increase all of the fonts like you can do in Internet Explorer.
1 Solution

Click Tools -> Options
Select the Mail Format tab
Click Stationery and Fonts&
On the Signatures and Stationery dialog box that appears, ensure that you are on the Personal Stationery tab
Click Font&
Then select your favourite font, style, size, colour, and effects& and then click OK half a dozen times :)
Greetings Milkybar-kid !

I assume you are not talking about changing the size of the text in messages you're reading. I'm talking about things like column headings and Subject lines.

Unfortunately, there isn't a single "Make the text bigger!" control you can set. Instead, you need to tweak individual settings in each view.

You can right click on an empty area of the Desktop and select Properties.  Under Apprearance tab, select the item that you want to change the font size. Change the font to next higher numer. Click OK to Apply.

Hope this helps, war1

It's the display font of items like the emails in the list that I am referring to yes. But I'm not talking about the desktop. It's Outlook 2007.

Milkybar-kid, Windows fonts sizes affect Outlook font size. So changing Windows icon font size will change Outlook icon font size.

Otherwie, there is not way to change the font size except what I outlined above.
Milkybar-kid, any update?
This solution will increase my font size only in the Inbox folder. Do you know how can I apply it to other sub folders I created in the Inbox folder?
