    Default Re: Windows Live Mail Desktop Font Size

    Hello Jef,
    The resolution you described below does not work for HTML email.

    Since I place my screen 5 feet away from me, I bought a large screen and
    personalized the text size. Nevertheless, the text size of HTML messages in
    Windows Live Mail is very small even when you select "Largest" for the text
    size in WLM.

    I did not have this problem with Outlook Express or Office Outlook in
    Windows XP.

    The text size is is obviously small when you print the HTML email.

    I asked this Q @ Microsoft Answers and received a message that WLM does not
    have the function to enlarge the text size of HTML email (coded in a certain
    way).
    The only way you can change the text size is to receive the message as
    "Plain Text." Since I do need to receive graphics/pictures, "Plain Tex" does
    not work for me.

    I have also read some suggestion that you can forward the HTML message to
    yourself, and you can change the font size in the process. This "High Tech
    Solution" might work, if I rceive only 1 message a day.

    My eyes are fine. I do not need glasses for reading, writing, driving, etc.,
    as I do not own a pair.

    I have also read that I cannot install my Outlook Express onto Windows 7.

    So I started wondering, who said "MAKE IT SIMPLER" for Windows 7.
    Again, I did not have this problem with my "COMPLICATED" Windows XP.
    I want whoever says, "Windows 7 is my idea," to fix this problem with WLM,
    ASAP.

    Best regards,
    Dr. Musou

    Not necessarily "the only way" but both WLMail and OE may need manual
    intervention when viewing HTML.

    Rather than forward the message to yourself, use Action, Forward as
    Attachment and then drag the attachment to an open IE window, where you will
    be able to have better control of its font size, printing, etc.

    BTW Outlook Express would have the same issues and the same workaround
    available to it.

    Robert,
    Thank you for the information.

    I do not know how many times I would have to repeat that I do have/own/run
    XP next to Windows 7, and do not have the same issue. I do not have to
    "workaround" with OE/XP.

    The problem with my XP is too slow, that was the reason I purchased new
    computer with Windows 7.
    Thank you, anyway.

    Then I suspect the difference there will be that you don't have IE8
    installed on your XP system. In W7 you start with IE8 and can't go back.
    IE8 does cause significant font problems for both OE and WLMail and some of
    the workarounds may involve registry hacks. So, if you like, one approach
    to changing your symptoms in W7 would be to use ProcMon to trace registry
    use by WLMail there. Then install WLMail in your XP system and trace it
    there and compare the traces for their essential differences. Then devise
    the necessary registry hacks which will try to emulate the same behaviour in
    the W7 case.


    Good luck

    Robert,
    Thank you again for trying to help me very patiently.

    I do have IE8 installed on my XP.

    Meanwhile, I check my emails at the email host website, instead, which works
    fine.

    If I need more help from you, I will post a message here again.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

    Best regards,
    Dr. Musou

    Then you could have an even better trace to compare. ; )


    Good luck
