Windows 7: Outlook 2010 reading pane zoom default

Sperry anyone

Thanks Pete, it may well be the answer but I am hoping to get a bit of feedback from the forum regarding this patch before installing it. Is this a reputable company? Can I assume there won't be any nasty surprises around the corner? The business of slowing Outlook down is curious: I have to declare that Outlook already seems terrible sluggish a lot of the time and displays distinct faults on a regular basis like freezing after I move an email to an archive folder. Anyone out there help?

I think the tool you're after is found by following these steps:
  1. Right click on the desktop and going to personalisation.
  2. Then click on windows colour
  3. Then advanced appearance settings

I don't think I ever thanked you for this invaluable information; I would never have found it myself. Thank you Tekno.

As far as i know they are a good company, they seem to specialize in making products for the office suite.

There has been no nasty surprises and i have even managed to get the icon to move so that its on the main "Home" Ribbon, this allows you to turn the zoom on & off if you want to.

i think the only reason the outlook is slow to start is that its checking to see if the addin has been paid for or is still in trial mode.

you also get two years of free email & Phone support.

Thats about all i can tell you really, like i said ive had no problems with it & its working fine, i also tried one from another company that had a trial, that was $9 i think but that didnt work as i expected so i removed it.

Hope all this helps, i would give it a try but the choice is yours.

No problem, but try the 14 day trial first, at least then you havent lost anything.

Let me know how you get on

Pete

P.s its $4 so cheaper than a fiver

I will go ahead and buy it; a cup of coffee in Starbucks costs more over here.

Just out of curiousity how long does outlook take to open, mine opens in around 4 seconds, but with this addon it takes around 6-8 seconds.

1.5 seconds. Because I use an SSD for the OS, most programs open rapidly. Photoshop CS4 opens in 12 seconds for example. I keep Outlook open and reduced on my second screen all the time so that would not be an issue for me.

LOL, i thought you said it was sluggish or do you mean when you are using outlook, not its start up time?

Yes, occasionally when I close emails and more often when I drag them into archive folders they freeze on the screen. They vanish when the screen is refreshed but it is irritating because everything else on my system works magnificently, even Word 10.
