    How can I change case size in Mail app in Windows 8.1?


    Ctrl+mouse Wheel doesn't work for apps to change case size. How can I change letter size?

    There's a setting in Control Panel > display to change size of other stuff, but not case size for text in apps like Mail App.

    Thanks.

    There is the ability to change font type, size and color but it only seems to effect messages you draft, I don't see anyway to change the font of received messages.

    If the Win 8 mail app doesn't work the way you want, why don't you install a different mail client? Personally, I use Windows Live Mail but the are others such as Thunderbird. This may not be an option for you if you are running an RT version of Windows 8 since you are limited to whatever mail clients are available in the Windows store.

    Thanks Strollin. I'll install Windows Live Mail if I can't find a way to change the case for Mail app. I like using default apps.
