    The Winaero Tweaker has helped a little, but MS has defaulted the system font to a choice of their own. The list of emails in every folder look spidery & thin, as well as the To/From/cc field.

    As a further comment, I use Outlook 2007. Ten years old I know, but quite frankly anything else after that is not efficient to this user. Each time MS rolls out a new version, they drop something useful. Whoever is advising Microsoft to do this is not having to use Outlook intensively every day. BUT the cause of the alteration to all the Outlooks (incl 2007) is OS upgrade 1709. THAT IS THE CULPRIT.

    Winaero Tweaker has helped considerably with the list of FOLDERS on the left, but the default font for INBOX items is not what I have chosen. MS Forum tells me what I see is currently the default font. they have chosen. After complaining about this, I did notice only today 27 Feb that MS has altered the default font again, making it darker. An improvement - thank you, but I really do want to have my own choice of font reflected.

    In the scheme of things technical I cannot believe this is insurmountable to MS. It is absolutely not on for you to dictate about this very important facility. You knew that OS 1709 would have this effect and yet you rolled it out. Not good business practice in my opinion; nor is taking away DISPLAY option from Control Panel. My overriding thought is: why would MS want to control this aspect of their product so much; what's the rationale for this uncooperative behaviour?

    Since upgrading to 1709 users font of choice is not being reflected in INBOX. Mail Folders on the left take up user's font choice, but when looking at a list of the contents in Inbox you have given us a very poor, thin, spidery font. I am told that this is currently the default look. Why does MS keep taking away useful functions with every upgrade; what's going on? I need to see my Inbox in the font & size of my choice. I have 2,000 emails there, Outlook is my main tool and I need to be able to find an old email quickly.

    Not only font size in To/From/cc but the font in display of emails does not respond to user's choice. It is currently defaulted to a scratchy, thin font. Winaero has helped, but these areas still cannot be adjusted.
