Please see this page for two possible answers:

http://mathematica.stackexchange.com/questions/1310/how-to-set-default-magnification-for-all-windows

In short, evaluate

SetOptions[$FrontEndSession, 
 FontProperties -> {"ScreenResolution" -> 108}
]

108 is 1.5 times the default resolution.  Adjust it to your liking.

When you are satisfied with the result, evaluate

SetOptions[$FrontEnd, 
 FontProperties -> {"ScreenResolution" -> 108}
]

to make the setting persist between sessions.
