How to Change the Font Size in Windows Live Hotmail Messages

By

Tiny fonts are so hard to read, and big fonts take up so much space… If you use the rich-text editor of Windows Live Hotmail, you can choose the perfect font size yourself.

Change the Font Size in Windows Live Hotmail Messages

To change the font size in a message you compose in Windows Live Hotmail:

  • Click on the Font size item in the message formatting toolbar.
  • Select the desired size from the drop-down menu that comes up.

Note: if you send a message using custom font sizes from Windows Live Hotmail, be sure the recipient appreciates it and is able to receive emails in HTML format.

You can also change the default font size for new messages in Windows Live Hotmail.
