    dialog box font and objects (xp home)

    My dialog boxes are filled with content that is too large to fit the unadjustable window. I've attached a screen shot of what my Options dialog box looks like in Outlook 2002. How can I make the content fit within its confines? Thanks

    Thanks for the response. My resolution is 1024 x 768. I've also tried 800 x 600, but get the same result.

    You're welcome. Hope one of these does it:
    1.) On the display properties settings click on the advanced button. Check the DPI setting on the General tab.
    2.) Check the font size setting on the Appearance tab of Display Properties.

    You're a genius, Joe. I fiddled (that's a technical term) with these settings after your suggestion. At first nothing happened. Upon reboot, however, all text and objects recognize their boundaries. Thanks.
