I have Windows XP Home Edition. When I type a message in Outlook Express the type shows small on the monitor. It is 10 point. As I type two or three lines it stays small until I get on the fourth line and then it appears larger. Also the curser starts out where it should be right after the letter but as I type two or three lines the curser moves ahead more spaces. You are never sure where the letter is when you want to erase a character. I know this is a small problem but when I had my old computer with Windows 98 it never happened. Thanks for any help you might give mel!
