The other day I was at my Mom’s house and she asked if I could take a look at her MacBook. Everything was working fine, but she found that the fonts were a little small. I went poking around and was able to enlarge the fonts in the Finder and on the Desktop, but that seemed to be the only places, other than individual applications, where I could alter the font size.

So to all my Mac gurus out there, I have a question. Is there a global font option to enlarge all fonts system wide?

In Windows there an option called “Font Size” under the Display Properties that allow you to set the font size for the entire system. Is there a similar option in Mac OS X?
