How to Zoom in when reading an Outlook email

Subscriber Jean K. asks ‘Is there a way in Outlook to zoom in to make the text in an email larger?’

If you have opened the message, as opposed to reading it in the Reading Pane, the Zoom button is the last button on the right of the Ribbon. When you click on it a dialog box opens that lets you choose one of the predefined percentages or you an enter your own.

Alternatively, you can use Ctrl and the wheel on you mouse to zoom in. Press and hold Ctrl then roll the wheel up (away from you) to zoom in. Press and hold Ctrl then roll the wheel down (towards you) to zoom out. This will work in the Reading Pane and most Windows applications so you can use it in Word, Excel and your browser as well.
