Windows 7: W7 SP1 appearance changes

W7 SP1 appearance changes

After finally istalling the SP1 update, it has made major changes in the appearance most noticed in MS Outlook. Text size/icons are much smaller as are right-click menus in the navagation pane but the email preview pane is unchanged.

I can't find any option that can make the changes that I need to get the same look again.

One can change the font size but nothing can duplicate what it was like before. I've increased the text size from Windows for now.

Anybody run into this or have a solution?

If you own the original CDs for MS Office you could repair MS Outlook, or from "Program & Features" in the Control Panel...SP1 shouldn't change your appearance settings normally.

I don't have the CDs, I downloaded MS Office.

I noticed later that it also affected the size of boxes in at least one other app that I use daily.
