    Win 10 Mail..How to change Default font and size?.....and more

    I can easily change the size and font but can't find how to set it as the new Default setting. Can it be done?

    Using Mail for Win 10 for first time, as that is what appeared for my Outlook email account. I found today that when using either CC or BCC a 'Return' occurs immediately after entering an email address, thereby moving the cursor to the line below, requiring moving the cursor back to that original line so that another email address can be entered, and again and again.. Never saw this before so probably/hopefully a fix is coming.

    While typing an email I touched the Caps Lock key mid-sentence and typed one capital letter in error. I touched that key turning off the caps lock function and the light went off. But from that point on I could only type in CAPS regardless of what I did. I had to close email and restart it to have it return to normal. Anyone else find that to be the case? How to fix?

    I am wondering (pretty much) the same thing as Roving. How to change both the font and it's size in the Windows 10 Mail app. It's easy enough to do in Windows Live Mail, but I can't seem to reset the default setting in 'Mail'. Didn't encounter the other problems that Roving mentioned. Thx.

    I would like to increase the default font by a couple of sizes, but I can't seem to find out how to do it.
    I can change it for a single message, but it reverts back to the default size of 11 when it's reopened.
