    Win-10 Mail problems.


    I think I need some GURU help with this one....

    I'm trying to use the Mail app in Win-10, instead of an aftermarket program.
    I was finally able to create and send an email, but nowhere was I able to set the default Font, Size, color, etc. for the email program. I could set those parameters for each individual email, but not a default for ALL EMAILS.
    (I could set those defaults in every other email program that I've ever used, or attempted to use, since Outlook Express)

    I send many emails per day, and I certainly don't want to have to set all the parameters each time I start an email.
    So, does anyone know how to set those Defaults in the Mail app in Win-10?
    Help with that would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank You,
    TechnoMage

    I do SO appreciate the help, but, I was reading the solution in Windows 7.
    So, I printed out the solution, which I had already seen several times in Win-10.
    Then I booted up Win-10 and opened the email program, as per instructions. Then I opened 'Settings' also as per instructions.
    I got the menu that was supposed to have one line that says "Default Font", right under "Signature"....but it's NOT THERE! WTF?
    I had looked at that very menu, several times, and NEVER has there been a "Default Font" line there.
    It just appears that this OS is not the same one that's shown in the tutorial. There are some other differences too.
    Thanks anyway Brink.

    I really do appreciate you guys,
    Cheers mates!

    Have posted note under the Tutorial for you.

    You have not stated your Windows build despite the very clear forum prompt, nor the version of Mail in use. Brink will need these. And note that Windows and apps evolve all the time with multiple versions simultaneously in use.

    Check the 'about' link in settings mine shows

    and the Default Font setting is there. Go to Store and do a manual check for updates as your version might be out of date.

    All you do is:
    Cog(settings) > Default Font > Apply to all Accounts(or each separate), Tick.
    Then Save at the bottom.

    You should be on version 16005.12228.20410.0

    The Mail App updates at around 2 week intervals.

    The guide on here is correct. Just checked for real.

    I have been using the Mail App for 5 years.
    Used Outlook Express, way back, it was certainly not that good. Unusable with modern Email accounts.

    Hello TechnoMage,

    Please go ahead and post a screenshot showing what you see instead to see if anything may stand out.
