    in the Finder (the main screen), in the menu bar: View>Show View Options, change the text size. there are options in some apps (like mail); shortcuts (like in safari, command + makes a page larger, command - makes it smaller).

    in system preferences>general, you can change the sidebar icons.

    just some options off the top of my head... :cool:
