Modifying your calendar details for improving visibility

Calendar is indeed one of the most popular features of MS Outlook irrespective of the version. This feature simply saves time that otherwise goes wasted in searching and working out on a manual calendar on a day to day basis. Moreover, it allows you to jot down reminders, tasks and other important appointment details directly in Outlook for an easier access whenever you are working on your system. However, at times, we add too many tasks and items in the calendar that other Outlook items get faded from our visibility. On the other hand, sometimes, we don’t put the items in the right way in the calendar and they don’t get noticed easily. So, it is very important to know how to modify your calendar details in MS Outlook for improving visibility. We will be discussing on different parameters that should be kept in mind while using calendars for a better visibility in this article.

First of all, let’s talk about how to Change the Calendar Size within the Navigation Pane. Outlook allows you to change Date Navigator’s font size with a few easy steps. For those who work on Outlook 2010 version, the step includes going to the File Tab and choosing the Options and picking the Calendar Option followed by clicking on the Display Option and finally opting the Font Option. In case, you are working on Outlook 2007 or other older versions, then you will first need to go to the Tools Tab then to the Options and select Advanced Options under the Options and pick the Date Navigator followed by selecting the Font Option. Outlook 2013 users however, can not change the font size of the Date Navigator because this option has been recently removed.

Another useful tip regarding the Calendar in Outlook is that you are allowed to Enlarge the Week Numbers. Bear in mind that the week numbers size depends on the font settings of the Date Navigator or the Mini Calendar, so the moment you decide to enlarge week numbers, you will have to enlarge the space in Outlook for displaying the Date Navigator too. The steps involved for this are almost same as described above.

Users can also change the Default Calendar Folder in Outlook that is located in the data file of the default mailbox. For this, you need to go to the File Tab and then to the Account Settings and choosing the Data Files in Outlook 2010 and 2013 versions. However, in Outlook 2007 and 2003 versions, you need to simply go to the File Tab and pick the Data File Management Option. After this just change the data file set as default and finally select Set As Default Option.
