Hi Peter,

some possibilities are...

1. use Format -> Magnification

2. go to Format -> Option Inspector...
         -> Formatting Options -> Font Options

   select Scope: notebook (or global) and choose your
   favorite font size.

3. edit the style sheet: Format -> Edit Style Sheet...

Best regards,
Marcus

PS. please use descriptive subject lines
