so, I have been searching for days, and cant find a solution that actually works
In outlook 2016, in the folder pane, I want to change the font..not the message pane, or the preview pane, but in the far left pane where all my folders reside.
In older versions of outlook, it was simple, but, in Outlook 2016, I cant for the life of me figure out how to do it

does anyone have a verifiable proven way of doing this, or is this another omission that the brain power at MS has let slip through the cracks?

thanks

Answer:how do I change font size/style in folder pane of outlook 2016

Windows 8 and Windows 8.1

Right click on an empty spot on your Desktop and choose “Screen Resolution”.Click “Make text and other items larger or smaller”.You can now directly choose to make the fonts larger. If you prefer a specific font size, you can click on the “Custom sizing options” text link below the presets and type any percentage you like. When you have multiple monitors connected and are using Windows 8.1, then you can select the option “Let me choose one scaling level for all my displays” to set custom DPI settings.

Windows 7
Right click on an empty spot on your Desktop and choose “Screen Resolution”.Click “Make text and other items larger or smaller”.You can now directly choose to make the fonts larger. If you prefer a different font size, you can click on the “Set Custom text size (DPI)” on the left and type any percentage you like.

Windows XP

Right click on an empty spot on your Desktop and choose Properties.Select the Settings tab and click the button Advanced.In the new dialog that pops up you can directly choose “Larger scale (120 DPI)…” in the dropdown list to make the fonts bigger. If you prefer a different font size you can select “Custom DPI…” and type any percentage you like.

Hi,I'm using Windows 7 Professional x64. When I use Windows Explorer to view image files (jpg, png, etc.), I would like to see each image's dimensions listed in the Details Pane (when it's set to view the images as Icons/Thumbnails, rather than Details). However, the only details that show up in the Details Pane are Name, Type, Date Created, Date Modified, and Size. This is the case even though:* I've checked 'Dimensions' in the 'Choose Details' options* The folder is already categorized/optimized for 'Pictures'* Other folders show the other details I want -- i.e., the Details Pane for my 'Videos' folder shows Length, Frame Width, Frame Height, and other details that I've chosenAny suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.

Hello dear forum members,

This is my first post here, and definately a place where I found many answers to my questions, until now.

I really tried anything to make this work, with no result, also found none solutions over the net or here in the forum.

I updated from IE8 to the latest IE9 Beta, and really like the browser except one big thing, the font render. New Vista style fonts are horrible and I want my old IE8 default Tahoma style font renderer for web pages.

After upgrading to IE9, the font settings look identical, but pages are rendered differently. I have tried numerous combinations in the Fonts settings tab with no luck, Accessibility didn't help much too, also tried Software renderer instead of Hardware, clear type ....... all with no luck.

Please tell me how to make my web page fonts displayed look like in IE8, here's what I want:



Here's whay I got at the moment with IE9:



Hope you have the answer, because otherwise I'm stuck with the old IE8. This new font render is genuinly bad, poor Microsoft.

Almost forgot, operating system is Windows 7 Enterprise x64, also tried on Vista x86.

Thank you in advance for your answers.

Hi, I just re-installed windows 7 on my desktop pc and have a question about the settings of the details pane in windows explorer (the one that appears and the bottom when you select a file). Previously when I selected video files (.mp4, .avi and .mkv) I would get the details at the bottom, the video frame width and height, size of file etc.. but since I reinstalled I don't get these details when I select video files. I know its only a small problem but I work with video files a lot and have gotten used to seeing the resolution of files without having to open them. Does anyone know how I can get the details pane to show these details again? At the moment it only displays the video size, name and state.

Here is a screen-shot of the details pane for a selected .mkv video file on my laptop, this is what I want it to display on my pc.

Answer:Increase font size Windows Explorer Folder Task pane

Have you thought about increasing font size globally? Right click anywhere on the desktop, pick properties, then go to the appearances tab. For font size pick large or extra-large. You may have to reboot.
Also you can use the magnifier tool in Windows to see parts of the screen. Go to start, program, accessories, accessiblity, magnifier. If your friend ends up using it often, go to that same spot in the start menu, right click on magnifier and pick copy. Then go to the desktop, right click, and pick paste.

P.S: Just a technicality: your screenshot shows the "common tasks bar" aka "places bar". The "Windows sidebar" is actually a feature in Windows Vista, which you can see here http://tech2.in.com/media/images/img...ta_sidebar.jpg (it's on the right; it's transparent, so you can't see it, but it's definitely a bar).

After installing the K-lite codecs pack, my mp4's all began displaying in the details pane as audio files (Album, Artist etc) and no longer displays the important video default details (size, frame height, bitrate etc).

If you use the details view in Windows Explorer, you'll note that save for the name field, all other fields are grayed out, likely due to Microsoft finding them "irrelevant" for most users. This is infuriating, as these are things which I refer to regularly, and I find it asinine that I'm expected to squint difficultly at gray text on a white background just to determine specific characteristics of a file. If anyone out there has any idea of a workaround, be it a third party application to hack around with the OS, or a registry value, or a setting which hitherto has escaped my notice, which would rid me of this annoyance, I offer my preemptive thanks and appreciation. Please, let me know if you have any ideas!

This is something that has been bugging me sense windows vista. The desktop icons are too far away from each other and I don't like the button style icons. I wish there was a way to change them to the old windows xp/win9x style icons. There must be a registry tweak or something. Maybe there is not and the only way to change it would be with reshacker. But I'd thought I would check here first.

Answer:Change desktop icons from button-style to XP/win9x style.

There are countless sites on the Web where you can download these icons. I'll let you do a Bing search to find a couple.

But, once you get them, here's a bit of info that might help you change the icons:

# You can select the picture file (that has an image file with a .bmp, .gif, .jpg, .jpeg, .jpe, .jfif, .tiff, .png, or .ico file name extension) that identifies a folder in Thumbnails view. If you do not select a picture, Windows Explorer uses the folder icon. If you do not select a folder icon, Windows Explorer automatically creates a folder picture for Thumbnails view by using a Folder.gif file in the folder or by using up to the first four image files in the folder. If the folder does not contain any images, Windows Explorer uses the default folder picture.

To find the picture that you want to use to identify the folder, click Choose Picture.

If you want Windows Explorer to use Folder.gif or the first four image files in the folder to identify the folder, click Restore Default. If the folder does not contain any images, Windows Explorer uses the default folder picture.

To select an icon to remind you of the folder's contents in Tiles, Icons, List, and Details views, click Change Icon. Thumbnails view also uses the folder icon if you do not specify a folder picture.

When I use Windows Explorer to view image files (jpg, png, etc.), I would like to see each image's dimensions listed in the Details Pane (when it's set to view the images as Icons/Thumbnails, rather than Details). However, the only details that show up in the Details Pane are Name, Type, Date Created, Date Modified, and Size. This is the case even though:

* I've checked 'Dimensions' in the 'Choose Details' options
* The folder is already categorized/optimized for 'Pictures'
* Other folders show the other details I want -- i.e., the Details Pane for my 'Videos' folder shows Length, Frame Width, Frame Height, and other details that I've chosen

Answer:Windows 10 - is there any way to change the size of the font for explorer headings?

Welcome to Windows Central,
In your Windows 10 PC, go to Start > Settings > System (Display, notifications, apps, power) > Display. You should see a slider underneath the "customize your display" window. Adjust that slider towards the right and click on "Apply" at the bottom of the page. You should then notice a increase in overall font size in "everything" - you may be required to sign out and sign in again for the effects to fully take effect.
Should you wish to ask further questions, please don't hesitate to create a Windows Central account and respond in this thread.

When I open an instance of windows explorer, the navigation pane show little or nothing (no drives, folders, etc.). Also the preview pane does not show a preview for any selected files (See Capture1.JPG).
If I open a second (or higher) instance of windows explorer, the navigation pane functions properly (the preview still does not show) (See Capture2.JPG).
I have previews set to show (See Capture3.JPG).
Also occasionally, the file icons will be blank instead of showing the file type specific icon. When this happens, the address bar also seems to take a long time to load. The load bar will stop before reaching the end and won't finish (See Capture4.JPG).

Does anyone know what is going on or how to fix this?

FYI I am running 64 bit Windows 7 Pro.

Answer:Windows Explorer: Navigation Pane and Preview Pane Bug

Try Explorer++ and see if you get the same problem.

Need to enable "Folders" view.
If it works then you can rule out problems with system files and it's probably a buggy shell extension.

I just did a reinstall of XP Pro and am having trouble with video files being "in use" when trying to move/delete them (only a several second lag, but it is annoying me). It has to do with a preview being generated in the details pane in the bottom left corner of Explorer. I eventually figured out how to turn off the preview option on my last install but have forgotten how I did it. Under folder options I have "do not cache thumbnails" unchecked. Is this the setting I need to change? Or is it somewhere else? It seems to me I need an option to not show a preview in the details pane.

Thanks for any suggestions.
 

Answer:How to Turn of Thumbnails in Details Pane?

I haven't done an XP install, but I have had problems like yours. Here is how I fix them without reinstalling, in case it may help? (The instructions may be different for XP.)

Thumbnails are used as icons when the folder is in Thumbnail view. This is usually not the problem, since they are usually cached after the first time. I turn them off by getting the Properties window for that folder. (I just go to the parent folder and right-click on the folder there, then choose Properties.) Then in one of the tabs, I find the Enable thumbnail view option and uncheck it. But, again, this is probably not the problem.

The preview thumbnail (actually, the whole details pane) can be turned off by unchecking View as Web Page in the View menu in one folder. Or, you can turn it off for all folders by going to View menu > Folder Options > General tab > choose Custom, then click the Settings button and in the View Web Content in Folders section, choose Only for folders where I select "as Web Page" [View menu]

If I want the details pane, but not the preview, I edit the HTML of the window. I don't know if you want to try this, it can be confusing, but here's what I do, just in case:
I right-click on the detail pane (or you can use the View menu), and click Customize this Folder... then choose create or edit HTML document. This allows me to customize that details pane. To remove only the worst case files from the preview, I see if I can find "var w... Read more

Is there any way to permanently remove or disable all of the various "views" in the Windows 7 Navigation Pane *except* for Details? If a subdirectory contains audio files I *never* want to see "Album" or "Artist" or any of the rest of that garbage. If the subdirectory contains an image file I *never* want to see a thumbnail of images. If I need more information about a file I'll right click on it and select Properties, thankyewverymuch!

In short, when I click anywhere in the left or right panel in the Navigation Pane I never want to see *ANYTHING* except the file name, type, size, and date modified. If it isn't a file (e.g. Network, etc.) just show me a computer or device name, not some massive image of a router or other waste of my time.

Hello.

I've been trying to re-organize my photo collection. Previously, I had been using Windows Live Photo Gallery to tag my photos, and admittedly it was convenient. Recently, though, the program has gone on the fritz to where thumbnails aren't loading so it's harder to differentiate photos simply by the file name in cases where I have a lot of photos of the same group or folder. While I've tried a lot of troubleshooting to get the thumbnails to load, and would gladly take advice on that issue, in the meantime I'm trying to accomplish the same thing using the details pane in explorer.

When I highlight a photo right now, most file types load the date stamp, tags, rating, author(s) and comments properties in the details pane. However, I'd like to edit the people properties so I can tag individuals in the photos. I have not seen a way to easily do that short of using other software (such as Photo Gallery).

Does anyone know if there's a way to do this through explorer or will it require a separate application?

I use Hotmail, and one problem with new edition of Hotmail has been solved throught Tech Support Guy. I sent emails about this website, www.techguy.org, to friends I was recommending it to. For accuracy I copied and pasted the URL. Then I found that the font style - specific font, size, italicised - of the URL determines that the rest of my email is in the same font, size, and italicised, and I can't highlight and change my own text back into my regular email style.

A minor but annoying problem, can anyone advise please?

I am running Windows XP home edition. I have Window Washer 6 downloaded. When I run it, my fonts are changed from Standard to Clear Type. Can I stop this from happening?

I have 3 Acer laptops running win xp. Garamond is default font. One laptop defaults to Garamond Antiqua in Office 2003 and in WordPerfect (any version) - don't know about other programs. The other 2 default to Garamond regular and do not give the option of Garamond Antiqua even though Antiqua shows in control panel\fonts. Have reinstalled Garamond Antiqua a number of times on these 2 laptops but still antiqua is not an option and if I type it in under format\fonts it says "font style name does not exist." Cleaned out all Garamond on the 2 laptops and and reinstalled all Garamond taking them from the laptop that defaults to antiqua via the windows\font directory of that computer. The 2 still show that antiqua does not exist even though it shows under control panel\fonts. Have also tried installing all of garamond from garamond fonts that Microsoft gave me one time. Didn't help. This big problem as it means that paging is different on the 2 versus on the 1 laptop.

Have had the same problem in the past with three Thinkpads.
 

Answer:Solved: font style name not exist

hmm...sounds weird. I'd try and make sure both pc's have all windows current updates and see if that helps.

good luck
