You could make your own style sheet and then convert your notebooks to that
style sheet.

1) Start a fresh Mathematica session with a Default style notebook.

2) Use Menu/Format/Edit StyleSheet

3) Choose Edit Shared Style Sheet

4) Save the notebook that comes up under a new name. Say TrexelStyle.nb
(When I tried this I just left it in the standard StyleSheets folder where
the other style sheets are but it should probably be put in a private
FrontEnd/StyleSheets folder. You should probably contact WRI for the exact
location of this because I am not certain.)

5a) Open up the Styles for Input/Output section and the Input subsection.
Select the Input cell and then use Menu/Format/Size to adjust the font size.

5b) Or you could select the cell, get the underlying expression by using
Shift-Ctrl-E and then set the font characteristics with options. Use
Shift-Ctrl-E to get back to StandardForm again.

6) Do the same thing for the Text cells and any other cells types you want
to change.

7) Save the notebook again

8) Whenever you open a new notebook use Menu/Format/StyleSheet and choose
TrexelStyle. Then the notebook will always be in that style.

I hope you can make the fonts large enough.

How can I change the font size, so that I can see it better ?
I want the font to larger when I do text and when I do any math.
How do I go about doing this ?  I want it to stay that way all the
time.  I have used the mag. to 300 % but with my eyes it is still to
small.  I don't like to change it each and every time I type a new
section such as from text to equations and back and forth.
