My Outlook 2013's reading pane doesn't shows complete text height in "From" and "Subject line". I can only see the upper half of text in From and Subject line area. And I have to scroll down to see the whole text every time I read the email. This is very annoying.

See picture below...


If you can't see the image above, simply click the link below or copy and paste the URL to your browser. 2013.PNG

I tried several things including text adjustment in View Settings, but it just doesn't work. I feel so annoyed scrolling down the line just to see the whole text height every time I read an email.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem? Please help...

View settings wouldn't apply here. It's likely caused by a display setting in Windows Control panel (Settings in Windows 10). I'm guessing you have the display % sert above 125% - outlook doesn't handle it well and tends to screw up dialog boxes and things like this that use a fixed size. The other cause would be a font size adjustment in display settings (Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display)
