Size of font in Address Book too small



Using Microsoft Outlook 2002 I have been able to change the font size of my
In Box, Out Box and Title bars but do not know how to change the font size in
the Address Book which looks like Tahoma 9 points and is too small to read
Any suggestions welcome.

Here are some steps that should allow you to modify the Address Book font
size. The only way to do it is to add a registry key and value. Make sure
that you create a restore point on your computer and backup the registry
before making any changes to the registry. If you are not comfortable
making changes in the registry then I would not suggest trying this without
assistance. Here are the steps:
1. Exit Outlook.
2. Click Start , and then click Run .
3. In the Open box, type regedit , and then click OK .
4. Click to select the following registry entry:
5. Right-click the Client key, click New on the shortcut menu, and then
click Key .
6. Type Gapi as the name for the new key, and then press ENTER.
7. Right-click the new Gapi key, click New on the shortcut menu, and then
click DWORD Value .
8. Type DefaultFontSize as the name for the new entry, and then press
9. Right-click the Gapi entry, and then click Modify on the shortcut menu.
10. Click the button next to Decimal and type the font size that you want
to use between 8 and 20 points.

I hope this information is helpful.
