Fot size, very small

In the last several months I have been getting emails from commercial companies, and these paragraphs have been in approx. size 3 fonts. I have an extremely hard time reading these.

Now I am getting some personal email from personal friends that are in this same size 3 font. I have tried several navigations to enlarge the fonts to readable size. I have yet to find the trick.

Is there a navigation I should be doing to enlarge this tiny print up to readable size?

FYI: I can read the font size print in this post without glasses, normally size 12 in regular email.

In most cases click on the website or the body of the email. Hold down the control key and roll the mouse wheel.

It should make the fonts bigger and smaller. Works for most Microsoft products and web browsers.

See if that helps sir.

Did it all with both left and right clicks, moved mouse, and also moved mouse wheel. But no luck. 3-Font email turned blue, but no change in font size.

Thanks for the help anyway.

Are you using Microsoft Outlook and if so which version are you using ? If you are using another email client could you please advise which one it is, it will help narrow down the options you would need to do.

Good morning sir,

WRT your challenge, can you go to the View tab of your browser window and then scroll down and change the Zoom?

sometimes I have to change the Zoom to 150 or even 200% to clearly read texts.

Thanks for everyone's help. But I think thru Bing I found the solution for Windows Live Email:

Go to Tools (upper bar)>Options>Alt key>Read all messages in normal size.

Whom ever is sending the Font size 3 emails are using embedded formatting.
