Windows 7: Office 2007

Office 2007

Having just installed Win 7 on my Dell Dimension 9150 and my existing Office 2007 I notice that the text size in Outlook is very small in comparison to what it was in XP. Is this to do with my graphics card (Radeon X600 Series) or another setting.

Unlike Word, Excel etc Outlook has no percentage screen size that you can increase in the bottom right hand corner.

Hello !!

I guess it might be the DPI setting. Follow this Tutorial and increase the DPI settings DPI Display Size Settings - Change

Hope this helps,

Trying to change the DPI but it would seem to affect all applications. The only program I have a major problem with is Outlook 2007 as there is no "Change Zoom Level" in the bottom right hand corner of the screen.

Why is the font size for Outlook 2007 different under Win 7 Pro than it was under my previous XP. Could it be something to do with incompatibility with the display driver?

When I ran the the WIN 7 Upgrade Advisor on my XP installation (I am still using the same computer) it did say that Win 7 Aero features might not work although from what I can tell they are! Very confused. Am I missing something or have done something wrong with the custom installation of Win 7 Pro 32 bit?

A quick search shows that the X600 board has only 128mb of memory. If this is true you need to upgrade that soon or turn off Aero. This may not help your Outlook problem but it may help the system overall.

Hi AjayK47

In Outlook, click on tools then, options, then mail format.

See if unchecking 'Rely on CSS for font formatting' makes any difference.

Another thought ... Outlook is tied into "Word", so take a look and see what size the font is set to.

Hi Ken, Then how come Aero features seem to work or am I not understanding correctly what Aero does?

Have given this a try but it makes no difference. It is the whole display on any Outlook screen that has the very small font not just the text within emails.

Thanks but makes no difference I'm afraid.

Ajay, Win7 is very graphic intensive and works best with at least a 256mg GPU.

What might be a good alternative graphics card for me? I do not need it for gaming but would want VGA and DVI outputs.
