Zoom slide

Some help please>>

From the attached you will see that I have my Zoom Slider ticked and ready for use but for some unknown reason it does not work and is greyed out.

My eyesight is getting worse and I really need to increase the size of the letters on my screen so would be more than grateful if someone could tell me how to get this Zoom Slider working again?? I am using Windows 7 Home Premium with Outlook Office 10

Thank You,

RonBin79 (now 82)

It looks to me like you have the zoom slider set to 10%. What you could try is untick the Zoom 10% in your Customise Status Bar menu. This should return your slider at the bottom RH corner, then try setting the Zoom to 110%.
I use Outlook 2013 & the zoom slide is centred at 100% so moving it to the right increases magnification & to the left decreases it. Looking at your screen shot it seems that the greyed out slider is locked at 10% & not 110%.
Hope this helps.

This MS website might help you. It tells you how to turn on the reading pane. Apparently the zoom slider is greyed out if you are not using the reading pane.
Also make sure you have all the latest updates installed.

Turn the Reading Pane on or off - Outlook

The Zoom
Now this is really, really, really annoying. Default Internet zoom setting is 100% which makes the screen way too small to see. As a result I have to set the zoom at 200%. Well, up until recently I've had no trouble with my new computer. After setting the zoom to 200% it's stayed that way. Now...
