At this time, NOT POSSIBLE...

From Microsoft's site;
At this time, you cannot change the font type, color, or size in the Navigation Pane.

However, our software development team is aware of this request, to be considered for future product releases.

Previous suggestions worked for me

by adamweiler In reply to At this time, NOT POSSIBL ...

The suggestion mentioned previously - Go to windows display properties, appearance tab, advanced, then change your font for Menu. - Worked for me.

Of course, the drawback is that this will affect the menu and other fonts for the entire computer.

It worked in Windows 2007 but not on Windows 7 Professional

by helenemaria In reply to Outlook 2003 Navigation P ...

I previously had small fonts (that's how I prefer them) in the Navigation pane in my Outlook 2007 installation on Windows 7. I do not remember if I did something to get it that way or if it was a default apperance. But, today I reinstalled Windows 7 to change from an Enterprise license to a Professional license, and now I have huge fonts in the Navigation pane and To-Do pane, and I cannot change it. I have really tried everything, also hints from this page.
It is OS version/package dependent?

Changing theme solved it for Windows 7

by helenemaria In reply to Outlook 2003 Navigation P ...

I selected the same theme I had when the fonts looked as I wanted (Windows 7 Aero theme) and now it looks just fine. The font sizes decreased in Outlook's navigation pane and to-do pane AND in windows explorers. The question is thus how to find a way to manually decrease the font size and save it in a customized theme. I can only find instructions on how to INCREASE the font size. It would be good knowing what in the theme adjusts the font sizes; could perhaps reveal this little secret?
