Hi, I"m using Outlook 2013 and I don't know what happened, but now all my replies appear as an 18 or so font size.

I've looked at various options in Outlook but can't find how to reset it. Suggestions? Thanks in advance.

is it the font size or zoom? if the entire message text is larger it's zoom.

To fix zoom: reset the zoom using the zoom button on the ribbon and then close the message - don't send the message.

Font settings are in file, options, stationer and fonts. Screen shots are here:

Diane, thanks for your fast response!

When I look at my Signature (which is size 11 in settings) it appears much larger, so I'll assume it's Zoom as you wrote.


This added a few minutes later ...

I used CTRL and the wheel (on my track ball) to adjust it and adjusted it from 140 to 100. So I now have an idea how this issue occurred initially.

Now you mentioned the fact that this is a Zoom issue, I still cannot find that Zoom sliding adjustment. Where is that? Thanks.

:) it's almost always zoom. If there is no slider, there should always be a button to adjust it on the ribbon.
