Windows 7: How do I change the font display size in Outlook outgoing emails?

How do I change the font display size in Outlook outgoing emails?

Somehow in typing an email I have accidentally changed the font size as displayed on the screen so it is too small to read easily. It is only on the outgoing email, incoming emails and all other Office fonts display as normal.

The actualy font size chosen (Arial 12) is still the same, it is just the display that has shrunk (to about 50%), presumably from a keyboard shortcut that was used accidentally.

Can someone please tell me how to get it back to 100% before I go blind?

If you have opened an email in a separate window - try Zoom Button (it is the last one one the right in Message tab).

If you are talking about general Outlook, where you can preview emails in one of the panes, there is a slider with percentage on the very bottom right.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I do not have a zoom button on the Mesage tab. I am using Outlook 2007 - amybe it was added later(?).

The text size problem is only when I am creating a new email, in a new window. Viewing emails is OK but I don't seem to have the slider on the bottom right that you speak of either.

Any other ideas?

When you start a new email try holding down the ctrl key and rolling your mouse wheel.

Thank you so much - that solved the problem!
Presumably that is what I did that upset it in the first place!

Thanks again!
