How to change subjects’ font size in mail list of Outlook?

Author: Kelly Last Modified: 2014-08-06

Normally the font size and font styles are preset in Microsoft Outlook. However, some users may think the subjects’ font is too small to view clearly in the mail list, and requires to enlarge the subjects’ font. In this article, I will introduce a way to change the subjects’ font size in the mail list in Microsoft Outlook.

To change the subjects’ font size in the mail list of a specified mail folder, please do as following:

Step 1: Shift to the Mail view, and open the mail folder that you will change its subjects’ font size in mail list.

Step 2: Show the mail folder in the Compact view:

  1. In Outlook 2010 and 2013, please click the Change View > Compact on the View tab.
  2. In Outlook 2007, please click the View > Current View > Messages.

Step 3: Change the view settings of current mail folder:

  1. In Outlook 2010 and 2013, please click the View Settings button on the View tab;
  2. In Outlook 2007, please click the View > Current View > Customize current view.

Step 4: In the popping up Advanced View Settings: Compact dialog box, please click the Other Settings button.

Step 5: Now you get into the Other Settings dialog box, and click the Row Font button in the Column Headings and Rows section.

Step 6: In the popping up Fond dialog box, specify or enter the font size in the Size box, and click the OK button.

In this Font dialog box, you are also able to change the subjects’ font face and font styles. For example, you can change the subjects’ font to the Calibri, and formatted as Bold and Italic.

Step 7: Click the other OK buttons to exit all dialog boxes.

Then you will see the subjects’ font size have been changed at once in the mail list of Compact view.

Note: You can easily restore the font size of subjects in the mail list to the initial size with clicking the Reset View on the View tab in Outlook 2010 and 2013. But this Rest View will also clear all customized view settings in this mail folder too.

Does not work. Fonts will not change. Any other suggestions?

Thanks! Man, it was annoying to have the giant text of who the email was from and the tiny text of what the actual email was about. Making it bold is so much better!
