how to make the font bigger

while trying to move emails into one of my folders I inadvertently made the page so small I can't read it and I don't know how I did it and how to fix it.

Re: how to make the font bigger

Your welcome.

Also:

Ctrl- will make it smaller.

Ctrl0 will put it back to default.

What browser are you using?

 

FWIW, if you use a scroll wheel mouse holding the ctrl key while scrolling up or down will also make the font bigger or smaller.

See if this will work for you.

 

Go to Tools/Options

Click on the Content Tab

Under Fonts & Color choose your font and font size

Click on the Advanced option

UNcheck Allow pages to use their own fonts, instead of my selections above.

 

You can also choose to change whatever fonts are listed on the Advanced option.

 

Make sure you click on OK.
