This question already has an answer here:

The default font is WAY too small. I can't read it on my jumbo-size laptop monitor, and my professors can't read my papers when I turn them in.

Can somebody please provide DETAILED instructions on how to change the GLOBAL default font size to 18 points?

    $\begingroup$ I don't recall asking about magnification. I want to change the global font, not just the appearance on my screen. I think I may have found something in another comment "SetOptions[$FrontEnd, FontSize -> 16]" $\endgroup$ – Jason Jun 17 '14 at 10:52
  • $\begingroup$ Well, magnification is the easiest way to make things look bigger, so I asked. $\endgroup$ – Öskå Jun 17 '14 at 10:55

I use Format/Option Inspector/Formatting Options/Font Options then look through and change as much as you like including font options:

Mathematica graphics

EDIT actually as mentioned the link found here: http://mathematica.stackexchange.com/questions/1981/keeping-text-size-the-same-throughout-entire-notebook-file

is much more efficient.
