    If you're talking about the font in the menu up top, there is only one way: change the monitor's resolutions. You will not be pleased about some of the consequences of doing so however.

    You can't change the fonts or sizes of the Menu bar items. At one time this was "tweak-able", but no longer is so.

    You _can_ change some other fonts sizes as used in dialog boxes, apps, etc. The utility that can do this is called "TinkerTool" and is available here:

    Caution! - changing things can produce undesired results, so if you use it to increase font sizes, proceed with care.
