    Outlook font problem

    I have Office Pro 2013. In Outlook, all the text in the ribbon and the navigation/folder pane has changed to a feint, spidery font. The text in the mail window is OK and all emails display OK. The ribbons in Excel, Word etc are all as they should be. The problem is specifically with Outlook.
    Can this font be changed?
    All the fixes I find on the internet relate to changing screen resolution which is not the problem here.

    See attachment.

    Adjusting font size in Outlook folder list (2016/2019)

    Hi folks
    Is there a way to get this screen in Outlook 2016/2019.

    Here in Outlook 2010 you can easily adjust the font size and type in the folder list (navigation pane) and other things which makes it much more readable on a large monitor - sometimes default fonts are too tiny - especially when viewed on large screens !!

    I can't seem to get to similar screens in Outlook 2016/2019.
    In Some places you can't set size either - you just get choice of small, large, larger !!!!!!! definitely a retrograde step IMO.
