Increase size of Outlook type at handy menu


July 11, 2002|By James Coates | James Coates,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

I recently upgraded to Outlook Express 6.0. Now when I want to print an e-mail, the print is so small I can hardly read it. Is there any way I can enlarge the print?

When I get an e-mail in Outlook Express that somebody has sent in tiny type, I open the note and hit Control-A, which selects all of the text in the message. I then click the Format choice at the top of the e-mail display and pick Font. This brings up a menu with a slider for increasing the text size.

Let me add that one also can find a font command while composing notes so that they are sent in a readable size.
