The folders on the left are tiny and too hard to read.  This post addresses the problem and has a graphic of where I'm talking about:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Office_Suites/MS_Office/Q_23648583.html

The answer is for Windows XP.  I need to know how to do this in Vista.

I right-clicked on the desktop and went to Personalize and then went to Windows Color and Appearance --> Open classic appearance properties for more color options --> Advanced --> selected Icon under Item and changed the font size as described in the above solution with zero effect, even after a reboot.

Please advise how to enlarge those folders in Outlook 2007 on Vista!  Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi visionarys,

Have a look at the Vista section in Fonts, sizes and color settings of the Outlook interface

Good Luck!

Hi,

Thanks for your input, but I looked at that link and there is nothing on that page that references changing the font size of the words inside the navigation pane on the left, which was my question.

I need a specific answer, not good luck :)

If anyone knows how to change font size/folder size in the navigation pane of Outlook 2007, please advise.  Thanks.

In the article it says "The font type of the Navigation Pane cannot be changed"
It however also shows you that you can change the font size globally for the whole of windows.

So it does.  I overlooked that.  Unbelieveable to me that Outlook 2007 won't let you adjust it!

Anyway, thanks very much.
