The display of New emails and replys were shrunk from a mouse wheel action

Last Modified: 2019-03-06
The magnification on my Outlook email responses became shrunk from a mouse wheel action when replying to an email, and I can't figure out how to reset it.

I was trying to use my mouse to scroll down and somehow it shrunk the display/magnification/font size of that screen, and now all new emails, or replys have this reduced magnification.

Now when I create a new email, or reply to one, everything is very small.   The actual font settings are still OK, and when I receive the email I send to myself it appears normal in the preview, but new messages and responses now have what appears like an 8pt or 7pt font, but it's just the display magnification or something like that.

Looks like I have to do that on the preview view, doing it on the response itself doesn't engage the zoom. Thanks!

No problem. I was also trying to find a keyboard shortcut. I'll post back once I do.
