In Outlook 2010’s Month view, the current day appears a bit washed out. The Default blue is a tiny bit lighter than the other highlighted areas.It is not impossible to find, but it is not as visible as it could be. The color is in keeping with the theme but if you would like your current day to be very visible to you, you can absolutely have it your way! You can change the default color.
Follow the steps below to learn how.
In Outlook 2007:
- Click on Tools | Options.
- Click the Preferences tab if necessary.
- On the Preferences tab, click Calendar Options in the Calendar section.
- In the Calendar Options section, select a new color from the Default Color dropdown.
- Click OK.
If you are using Outlook 2010:
- Click File | Options.
- Click Calendar in the left-hand pane.
- In the Display Options area, select a new color from the Default Calendar Color drop-down.
- Click OK.
This property changes the Calendar color, not the selected day, so it is a big change. You will want to select a color that contrasts with the border of the current day.
Keep in mind that all of the calendars, not just the Month view will be updated. In addition, the system you are using may matter. In version 2007 the colors are a bit more subtle than version 2010.
This is just one of those simple little tricks that has the potential to make your day run just a little bit more smoothly.
