Windows 8 Mail App is too big for my laptop screen

The menu fonts etc. are so big in Windows 8 mail that it barely fits the screen (http://www.willkay.com/winmail.jpg).

I need to scroll down to see all my folders on the left. I also need to scroll right and down to read the content of each of my emails. 

Why is the spacing so strange? e.g. to the left of the email receipt list there is like an inch of spare space!

My resolution is 1366 x 768 so its not small, I wonder how a small tablet would cope???

Can I reduce the size of these fonts this application uses so it all fits nicely? Perhaps from what looks like 18+ to more like 12?

See an image of the app here; http://www.willkay.com/winmail.jpg

Thanks

Try Zoom-Out?   E.g. press Ctrl--  or pinch with two fingers.

Thanks but I tried that and it doesn't do anything!

 

Also I'm on a laptop so I can't touch the screen.

 

I think windows 8 is a pretty useless for a laptop, purely designed for tablets it seems?

 

But then again, if this was on a smaller screen you would see ever less of the folder list!

 

Very strange design.
