Increase Font Size of Outlook 2016

Under Windows 7, how can I increase the default font size of everything in Outlook 2016's opening window. These tired old eyes find all of the panes hard to read.

Thank you.

Hi:

I do not use Outlook (2010 on my Win7 boxes and 2016 on my Win10 box) and I have not tried the links or the suggestions therein, but Uncle Google turned up these:

(Scroll down on the page for instructions to change the interface font)

Thank you MoxieMomma.

I had found all the references you mentioned but they didn't have what I needed for Outlook 2016. At least, if they were there I couldn't find them.

Hi:

That's odd.

This site - Office 365 (Outlook 2016 for Windows) - Customize the Outlook window - purports to apply to Outlook 2016.

And, if one scrolls down, one sees this: "Enlarge font size in the Reading Pane"
The screen shot describes 2 methods.

If that's not what you're looking for, then I guess we'll need to wait for someone else to respond.
Sorry I could not help.

Cheers,
MM
