Large font in Outlook 2K dialog boxes

By leunghiutung ·
My Outlook 2000 has a problem.Some characters and buttons in most dialog boxes are unusually large, while the dialog boxes themselves and captions of the tabs are in regular size. That makes parts of the dialog box contents unreadable. E.g. in the Options dialog box, I can see only 1/5 of the rightmost options buttons and I can't even see the "Notes" part.

There is no problem with other Office components. Within Outlook, most dialog boxes have the problem except the "Customize" dialog box.
Please help!

All the menus are Ok, only dialog boxes and the "Help" part have the problem. And I have to apologize that actually i'm not sure is EVERY dialog box in other Office components is OK as i haven't click through them one by one. But most of them are OK.

I would suggest trying the following as many times the fonts in dialogs are set to go by Windows settings.

Select START/SETTINGS/CONTROL PANEL.
Select the DISPLAY item.
In the Display Properties dialog select the APPEARANCE tab.

If the SCHEME is blank and you like the current settings use the SAVE AS button to create a scheme setting file.

In the SCHEME drop down, select the WINDOWS STANDARD option (not LARGE or EXTRA LARGE).

Select APPLY.
Select OK.

Check if Outlook behaves any better...

If so then many of the dialog controls are being defaulted to your appearance settings and not readily set to handle large fonts, etc.

Just a guess...

This method has helped but doesn't have a lasting effect. I followed the instruction and then opened my Outlook immediately, the problem had gone. But then i quited it and opened it again, the problem came back. And then i checked the Appearence taband only to find that the SCHEME went blank by itself...
