  1. Windows/Office font sizes too BIG


    So the latest update to Office has made the ribbon icons and font sizes even bigger, and I'm getting fed up with this! I have a 16" monitor that is 1366 x 768 for its highest resolution, and I don't want the ribbon taking up 20% of my screen space!


    There USED to be settings in Windows to change the fonts on menus. (I'd be fine with browsers and other software menus getting smaller if needed.) I've searched and searched and searched and all I can find is instructions on how to make Windows text bigger. People complain about it being too small... but nobody is complaining about it being too big, it seems. Did Microsoft really take the options away? Am I the only person left with good eyesight and a laptop with a 1366 x 768 resolution screen?

    Is there anything out that that will give me back the desktop space that all these menus are taking from me?

    :)

    Office 2016 font selection only big, bigger etc no sizes


    Hi there

    In Outlook 2010 you can select for example font size in things like unread mail headers etc

    In Outlook 2016 these only give small, big, bigger etc so for looking say at headers for unread mail they look stupid if the rest has larger fonts.

    here's outlook 2010
