HI, I have a 64 bit windows 7 machine running office 2010.
I have to change my screen text size to smaller (100%) to print a certain report. But mainly, I use the medium (125%) for every day general use.

my problem is, i have set the text size to medium, when i open any office program, the fonts look fine, but all the icons are set to large.
I have rebooted the pc. changed to small, then back to medium.

any idea's

Hold CTRL button and scroll mouse (wheel) key to change desktop icon sizes!

Hmmm - what does Right click on desktop and choose 'View' icon sizes do for you?

Clarification... Outlook only or all MS app's... Do you mean in the Ribbon area?

Outlook can control many features of layout

But...

Other MS App's Ribbons appears to be locked to screen 'DPI' and/or ribbon content.

Have you tried 'Minimize Ribbon' if space is needed or wanted.  

Or

Right Click Ribbon area and 'customize' then 'reset' button on bottom of screen..
