Open Personalization by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Personalization.
In the left pane, click Adjust font size (DPI).
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
In the DPI Scaling dialog box, do one of the following:
To increase the size of text and other items on the screen, click Larger scale (120 DPI)-make text more readable, and then click OK.
To decrease the size of text and other items on the screen, click Default scale (96 DPI)-fit more information, and then click OK.

First, right click on your desktop and click on Personalize. Alternatively, you can go to Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Personalization.
In the Personalization window, go to the left pane and click on Adjust font size (DPI).
If UAC is turned on you will need to make an additional confirmation so that the DPI Scaling window will launch. You can choose the default scale of 96 DPI or a larger one of 120 DPI, which makes the text more readable. If these two options are not enough you can click on the Custom DPI button and choose another size (DPI).
In the Custom DPI Setting window you can select the desired percentage for the DPI increase. You have the following options: 100% for the normal size of 96 DPI, 125% for 120 DPI, 150% for 144 DPI and 200% for 192 DPI.
If you set the DPI higher than 96, and you are running Windows Aero, the text and other items on the screen might appear blurry in some programs that are not designed for high-DPI display in Windows Vista. You can avoid this issue by using Windows XP style DPI scaling. Just check the appropriate option and press on OK.
The change can be applied only after a system restart. Close all the running applications, save your open documents and then press on Restart Now. After a reboot, the font size will be changed.
