Is there an easy way to enlarge the font size in the toolbars at the top of all apps, and top of the home screen?  IE: App Name, File, Edit, View etc.

    Nope. Only by reducing the screen resolution.

    My 27-inch iMac made things too small for my old eyes and I changed the screen resolution from the default of 2560x1440 to 1920x1080. The menubar is now 0.30" wide and easy to read, as are most text in programs. I still have plenty of screen real estate and the change in res did not affect the sharpness of text or images.


    There is an option in System Preferences >Displays to show a screen res icon in the menubar that looks like this in use:

    If you use that option you can quickly change res later if something needs a larger res.
