    Font in Windows 8 Pro


    Morning every one.
    When ever I write some thing out as in email, word or the like the print is always size 11 which is far too small for me. I f I enlarge the font how can I keep it that way.
    Appreciate any help. arram.

    P.S. Seems as no one wants to answer this one, tried a couple of days ago. First time user an all. arram.

    So, off my head, I don't think Windows 8 controls this. Each program does. Are you using Office? If so, change the default Style sheet in Word. It's called "Normal." See: Change or set the default font - Word - Office.com

    Since Outlook uses the Word editor, it should change that also, but I have check to verify this.

    Hello rmeigs.
    Thank you very much for replying. Your Word Office.com, worked fine for Word, now how about Outlook?
    I'm using Office 2007, bit antiquated maybe but works fine for me.

    If your reading this reply would you know how to make the mouse arrow larger. arram.

    Glad to help out. That's what these forums are all about, although with all the infighting one often sees, it'll make you think otherwise . Enjoy Win8!
