Default Font size for MS Office

My colleague was having an issue with Excel, where it would default his row height to 14.4 instead of the standard 15. Through your community, I found that if we went in to his Control Panel - Display options and decreased his display from 125% to 100%, excel row heights would be correct each time he opened a new spreadsheet.

However in doing so, when he opens Outlook 2010, his display has become considerably smaller.
My questions is if we can adjust his display, just so that his Outlook can display at a larger size, without affecting Excel 2010?

He has Windows 7, MS Office Professional Plus. Thanks

Outlook 2010 has Views that you can configure for your various folders, emails, etc.  Try View tab at the top - View Settings - Other.
