Rustler's advice is for QuickBooks Windows.  For QuickBooks Mac you can change the font size on many windows. Look in the toolbar at the top of the window for an icon that looks like this "Aa".  Choose the smaller a to shrink the font, the larger A to increase it.  This works in all the centers, reports, registers, TimeSheet, and other windows.  (It doesn't yet work in the "Form" windows like Invoice, though we increased the font size of those, too, if you are on the latest versions - currently R12).

Thank you for your response. I, too, am having challenges changing my font size. I'm running QBs 2016 for Mac, version V17.0.4.584 R05.1 - but when I check to see if there's a newer version available (especially considering you're saying it's up to R12), QBs tells me that version "is currently the newest version available." That being said, nowhere in my toolbar, nor in my "customize toolbar" screens do I have the "aA" size selector. It doesn't exist in any toolbar, nor can I drag it and add it in. Any ideas? I'm hoping I can import the sizing option somehow?
