This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

How do you go about increasing the size of the text? (There are various ways.) –  David Carraher Feb 22 '13 at 3:21
I have been using Format > Size > Larger (or pick a particular size from drop down menu) after selecting all. The guidance I found on style sheets looked like I would need to leave a trail of bread crumbs to ever find my way back out . . . –  rexacoatl Feb 22 '13 at 3:47
You might use the Window > Magnification > ... menu to enlarge the overall size everything displayed in a Notebook window. I have poor vision and I normally work with at a magnification of 150%. Makes both input and output easier to read. –  m_goldberg Feb 22 '13 at 5:50

This will plot out a phrase in four different sizes. The syntax for changing the size is just


Table[Graphics[Style[Text["how about this?", {0, 0}], size]], {size, 
  10, 40, 10}]
