Hi:

I have a couple of Outlook issues for which I am looking some help for.

1.       The address book.

a.       My address book in Outlook is set up to have two sections, one is Contacts and then there is the Contacts in the cloud.  Do I have to have both? My husband says I need both.

b.       Is there an easy way to back up my address book onto an USB drive in case the computer crashes and once restored it could quickly be down loaded again.

2.       Ever since my Outlook was updated with a new driver, the text in my Outlook window is way too big. Where can I make changes to the settings responsible for this kind of thing and bring it back down to normal?

3.       And I can no longer add a picture into my e-mail message without the picture creeping under the task bar area, so I only get to see a sliver of the picture. Before it was a piece of cake to embed a photo (this also results in received e-mails with pictures to be effected in the same manner, not all picture but many).

Thank you for any helping you can offer.   :bananas:

I presume you're speaking of the Outlook e-mail client.  If that's the case, it's important to identify which one (Outlook 2010, 2013, 2016, or 365) or Outlook.com if you're talking about the web interface.

 

Outlook, regardless of what's being talked about, does not have drivers.  It is not a device.   Is your enlargement only when you are looking at Outlook or is everything on your computer larger than it had been in the past?

Hi Brian: thank you for responding. To answer your question, it is only on the email Outlook. And I believe it is 2016. My husband did something to "update" Outlook, just before the larger text image started. 

Again thank you.

I have Outlook 2010, so I cannot offer too terribly much in terms of conjecture with regard to any of the "bells and whistles" that come after 2010.

 

Take a look at the lower right corner of your Outlook Window and you should see a Zoom slider, where 100% is dead center and you zoom in (make larger) sliding right and zoom out (make smaller) sliding left.  If they've made this setting persistent between sessions it could be that it has been slid above 100%.  Otherwise I would bring up Outlook help and see what you can find when you search on "zoom".

 

I don't think that Outlook has its own accessibility features but I'd also take a look at whether it does or has it's own private magnification feature in versions later than the one I have.
