    Hi,

    I have a trouble reading the small font size text in my outlook in Vista.

    Can I make the font size bigger? I can go to main-menu -> view -
    arrange-by -> custom -> other-setting -> column-font to change the font size

    for the current view (e.g. inbox). However, what I need is to make all the

    text in Inbox propotionally bigger? Is it possible?

    In XP, I can go to Desktop -> Display-properties -> Settings -> Advanced -
    General -> DPI settings and set large size. I don't find it in Vista.

    Besides, I just want to change font size for Inbox unless changing DPI

    setting is the only way.

    Could anybody advise me? Thanks for any help.

    You need to change the DPI or resolution. Right click on the desktop and

    choose Personalize, Display Settings (bottom of window).

    Have you thought about getting reading glasses? Do not let the optician

    sell you bi-focals or varifocals; explain that you want fixed focus lenses

    to allow you to see clearly at the distance you have your computer screen.

    Actually, you may want "progressive" lens - but you want them designed for

    the computer screen focal point, not eternity. Ask for Computer glasses and

    any good optician should get it right. (My last computer glasses were

    progressives and I'm very happy with them - they do better than the fixed

    focus lens I had before.)
