Appearance of font size in drop down

Hi,

I have created a data validation list in excel. The list contains 3 values which have a font size of 10. The zoom of the page is set to be at 68%. However, when clicking the drop down button the font size in the list appears to be much smaller.
Is there a way I can fix this without changing the zoom level?
Please see the file attached.  filter-zoom.xls

You can't change your validation list drop down fonts! If you want more control over the font, then you will need to use a different approach to drop-down lists, such as using a combo box from the Control toolbox.

There is a walkaround by using a zoom that is described here:

But other that this, you can't change the font size or the width of your data validation list.
