Office challenge: How do you change Outlook's default font?

Learn the answer to last week's Excel template challenge and test your Outlook skills with this week's new challenge.

While you're performing some routine maintenance tasks, the system's user complains that Outlook is using a funky script font and he doesn't know how to override it. What do you do?

Last week we asked… How can you apply different templates to the same workbook? Agency had the right answer! You can apply a template to each sheet, so the possibilities are almost endless. To apply a template to a sheet, do the following:

  1. Right-click the sheet tab.
  2. Choose Insert from the resulting context menu.
  3. In the resulting Insert dialog, click a tab and select a template.

It's simple, but people tend to think in singular terms when using templates, but a workbook doesn't limit you to just one!
