Let’s say you’re writing an email in Microsoft Outlook and you have your font size set to 12, but the font looks like it’s size 6 or size 24! Or say you’re reading an email, and the font size is similarly unreadable or otherwise out-of-whack.

This is usually just caused by incorrect zoom settings. (When working on laptops, it’s often easy to inadvertently trigger a zoom action with the trackpad.)

Thankfully, it’s an easy fix. Just follow the instructions for Outlook 2003, 2007, and 2010 in my How to Zoom Emails in Outlook post to reset the zoom level to 100%.
