Reading Pane - change default font size or zoon RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can you change the size of the font in the reading pane or change the default zoom settings? The font is too small and I don't want to have to increase the zoom everytime. Can I change the default zoom size?

  • Hi,

    The zooming factor set via this slider or by scrolling for Reading Pane is not persistent. To set a default zooming level, you may need to find a third-party add-in. Or, you may consider following methods:

    • Changing the DPI settings in Windows
    • Convert HTML messages to Plain Text and then customize the font size for Plain Text messages

    See the following article for detailed information:

    Hope this helps.

  • Thanks. I did a bit of research and I noticed this was a common query. Would be good if Microsoft could address this issue. It would be of particular help to people with sight issues.
