If you use outlook, you may have noticed that there is no default way to permanently and unilaterally change the zoom (font size) in the reading pane. If you click on a message, it will be defaulted to 100% every time. This can cause obvious problems if you like a high resolution screen for some reasons, but have trouble reading small text.
I've found a few solutions, but they are not optimal:
- Change DPI on the monitor - This is bad because it affects everything else on your computer too. In my personal case, all my desktop icons get bigger and arrange in a way that doesn't work for me.
- Purchase a third party add-on - It's not expensive, but it's very stupid that I should have to purchase anything for what should be a default accessibility feature.
- Hold control and use the scroll wheel - This works great ... if only it could be permanently set for all messages.
I don't know much about macros, but I understand programming just enough to get by, and I understand that you can do some pretty powerful things with them. It certainly seems that outlook supports them in a similar use case. And this post might be helpful if I understood what it said in the first place.
So a macro is a doable option, assuming it can autorun on startup.
A free add-on would be fine too. Or plug-in or whatever else might work.
