Hello, I am using Outlook 365 Classic, not Outlook New. How do I change the size of the menu text, without affecting the size of the body of the letter, the inbox preview area, or any other areas? Thank you.

Oh, I've bumped into this one before! In Outlook 365 Classic, tweaking just the menu text size specifically can be a bit tricky because it doesn't give you direct control over individual elements like that. But, here's a workaround that worked for me: dive into your Windows settings and adjust the display scaling. It's a bit of a blunt tool because it'll affect more than just Outlook, but you can fine-tune it to get a decent balance. Just right-click on your desktop, go to Display Settings, and play around with the Scale and Layout options. Start with something like 110% and see how it looks. Not perfect, but it did make the menu text easier on my eyes without turning everything else into giant text blobs. Give it a shot!
To adjust the font size of the menu text in Outlook 365 Classic, you can follow these steps:

1.Open Outlook and click on the "File" tab in the top left corner.
2.From the list on the left-hand side, select "Options."
3.In the options window, select "General" from the list on the left-hand side.
4.Under the "Personalize your copy of Microsoft Office" section, you will see a drop-down menu labeled "Office Theme." Select "Black" or "Dark Gray" to increase the font size of the menu text.
5.Click "OK" to save your changes.

Note that this will only affect the font size of the menu text and not any other areas of Outlook. If you want to adjust the font size of other areas, you will need to adjust those settings separately.
