How can I get the font to be larger on my Outlook Express?

Posted

Yesterday, I was on my email Outlook Express....I'm not sure why, but the font became very small. I can't figure out how to make it a larger font so it will be easier to read.

Hotmail (Windows Live) has changed to an Outlook website for managing the email, so it is likely that the OP is referring to these pages.

Note that you might have changed the page zoom via the keyboard shortcuts "Ctrl + +" and "Ctrl + -" or with the mouse scroll wheel when you pressed the Ctrl key.

Yes, I'm using a mouse, but the thing in the middle (I can't think what that's called) is not inoperative. That's probably what I touched without realizing it. Philipp's control +0 fixed the problem. Thanks for your input as well. Carol V
