This is what style sheets were designed to do. You can modify the default style sheet but I suggest copying it, or the one you currently use, to $UserBaseDirectory<>"/SystemFiles/FrontEnd/StyleSheets" before you start to play. Renaming it will help you recognise it when you restart Mathematica. Start with a trial notebook & change it's style sheet to the one you just copied. Go to Format->Edit Style Sheet -> "Edit Shared style sheet" to modify the styles in this sheet. For your particular problem, find the section heading for input/output & change font sizes to what you want. You'll need to change sizes for both input & output styles. Do the same thing for text, which is in the body text section. If you're interested in the printed version, you'll need to pay close attention to the printout style in each of the above sections. That's if you always remember to change the style to printout before printing the notebook (I never do). It's straightforward, but daunting if you're new to the program. Regards, Dave.
