    metro mail fonts


    There is no way (that I can find) to make the fonts in the Metro mail app larger. The only option I have found is to go into PC Settings -> Ease of Access -> Make everything bigger. But that option makes everything huge, including the tiles on the start screen. All I want to do is make the mail font a little bigger and more readable.
    Is there a hack that would allow me to do this?

    If you right click on the page you are composing your new message, you get the option at the bottom, hope this is what you asked for.

    Thansk - unfortunately there doesn't seem to be such an option for font size when reading messages, however.

    Mail App Font Size


    I hope Microsoft look at this in an update because I have sight problems and so have real problems with this app

    yeah, I can't believe that Microsoft forgot to do a pinch to zoom function in the mail app. a serious oversight. they have been updating the app regularly (surprisingly) so it has gotten better but there is some very basic functionality still missing. but overall, the app is easy to access and pretty easy to use.

    I completely agree. The other thing that I would want is the ability to change the default font as well.
