I have Micro Outlook 2007. When I go into Outlook to compose an email the ruler is tiny and squeezed to the left. I know where the View Ruler icon is but it does not let me stretch the ruler. Any clue

The ruler in Calendar, Contacts, and e-mail suddenly shifted to the left side.  Anything typed ends up being tiny.  I can't read anything, so I type my messages in Word and then copy them into the e-mail.  That way I know that what I sent is correct.  When I go into Sent Messages, what I have sent is normal and can be read.  I have sent messages to my self, and they can be read.  But I cannot type anything that is readable because the ruler is so tiny.  On the Help information on the Internet, other people have had this problem.  Your company seems to have an answer, so I joined your service.  Help!

By the way, anytime I try to stretch the ruler back to the right margin, it will not let me.  It keeps going back to the two-inch ruler on the right side.

    You can do a screenshot by clicking Alt+PrintScreen on your keyboard to capture active window only or just PrintScreen (PrnScr) to capture all desktop to the clipboard. After that you can paste it to any image editor (like Windows Paint) and save to the desired format.
