    how do i change the size of email text that i see in windows live mail?

    This did not address the issue.

    Where is the usual Edit tab that allows me to see the size of font/italics/bold right there while i am composing?

    Do I have to go to File - Options - Email - Font every time to change the font or bold a section of text?? That can't be right.

    File Explorer Font is Bold

    Hi. Could you post a screenshot of it please. It could be something to do with cleartype. Have you adjusted cleartype or DPI or changed the font in some way?

    Check in Control Panel/Display settings:

    ...unless you're running Insider Build 15031 wherein that luxury necessity has been removed and you will need to use Winaero Tweaker.

    Thank you.

    I just did that and it only changed the title bar, not the body. See the included screen shot.

    You may need to restart Explorer for all the changes to take effect. You could try restarting the PC, but logging out and back in should be sufficient. You can also restart Explorer from Task Manager.

    Did a Restart but still get the bold body. Also logged and logged back in but with no change.

    OK everybody. I resorted to the old time method of going back to a restore point and that corrected the problem.

    Thanks to everyone who helped.
