    In the Calendar; How do you change the Font Size in the notes section below Subject, location, Start, End time? The font size in this area is way to small and needs to be adjusted.

    How do you change the color of font in the body of the calendar appointment? In 2010 Outlook version it keeps defaulting back to white no matter what we do and we can not get it stay even when we pick automatic on the black option. p.s. this is a group shared calendar

    Not true, sorry. I have set a non-bold font, but all appointments appear in bold font in my calendar. Please help me to make the font regular again, just on my screen. It is very disturbing to have some appointments in bold font, and some in regular font. I have been searching how to change this for quiet some time now, so I hope someone can help me. Please. I have Office 2016/365.

    This was very helpful thanks! While I was able to change it on the screen, when I print out the calendar monthly or weekly vs. there must be a default as the appt time/info does not print out in the selected font. I'm fine w/the monthy view printing as is but the weekly view I really would like to see the appt time/into larger. I'd like to use this as our family calendar for everyone to see but font prints too small. Thanks.

    FYI, I have Outlook 2010.

    Had the same problem Button26

    Make your individual calendar appointment as big as the screen.

    Go to the meeting tab
    A sub-tab should show that says "Zoom" with the magnifying glass. (probably all the way to the left)

    Click on this and reset to 100%

      Thanks Steve Z. I did as you suggested, but in Outlook 2007 you do open the individual calendar appointment to full screen, but then you go to Format Tex (not Meeting Tab) and then all the way to the right is the Zoom tab - just change it to 100%. It worked! So Button26 you can do this as well.

      Where is the 'meeting tab' located? I only have File, Event, Insert, Format Text, and Review tabs.
