    This worked great for me in Windows 10! Not only did it fix my huge Outlook 2016 ribbon, but it also made my entire Windows environment better! Much appreciated.

    Still doesn't work in Windows 10. Agree with other posters about Win 10 being garbage.

    Doesn't work in Windows 10, i.e. no way to change the ribbon font size or size of the ribbon when it's displayed. Windows 10 = piece of garbage. Win 7 far better.

    Ribbon font size got big all of a sudden one day, even the fonts at the desktop. But the fonts of icons or title menus were able to be changed to smaller ones but the Ribbon font size won't seem to change even after changing the font size. Please help me out

    There is a command in Office 2013 menu "Optimize Spacing Between Commands", select "Mouse", and the ribbon resizes down to smaller version found in Office 2010. Set it in any Office program and this sets the ribbon size in all Office apps incl Excel and Word as well. Complete fluke finding it but now I've gotten back the small ribbons and have room for all the macro commands that were on my customized QAT.
