In Microsoft Outlook 2013, the current day is highlighted by a slightly different color blue at the top of the day. Is there a way to alter this highlighting to make it more obvious at a glance to see the current date?

You can do this:

  1. choose default color grey
  2. right click the calendar
  3. in the context menu choose "View Settings..."
  4. choose "Conditional Formatting..."
  5. now add a bright color with the advanced condition to match when start and end date equals today
  6. enjoy and never attend meetings again today which are really scheduled for tomorrow :)

Note that recurring appointments might be colored even if they are not today.

    > Note that recurring appointments might be colored even if they are not today. Not "might". They do. Each one. So unfortunately, another basic feature where Outlook fails miserably :-( – user351143 Jul 29 '14 at 12:36

    @user351143 You can get around this by adding another condition - for Field, choose "Recurring" (from the "Frequently used fields" selection), and for "Condition", choose "no". – pgl Sep 18 '15 at 9:55
