Does anyone know if I can make my menu bar a little larger? I have a rather huge screen and the font is kind of small. Thank you.

    System Preferences->Display->select a smaller resolution.

    You need to play around w/the different resolutions.  I have a 27" screen & 1600 x 900 works for me.

    An alternative to the resolution is just zooming in.  Go to Accessibility and enable keyboard shortcuts and have the zoom style set to "full screen"

     

    Now you can zoom in and out by holding the Command key and 1 finger swiping up/down for in/out on the magic mouse 

     

    Lastly, while still in the zoom category, click "More Options" and select "Continuously with pointer" . . . now while zoomed in, the screen will just move wherever you mouse moves

     

    Note these are just my preferences, there are several different options

    AFAIK, that won't make the menubar text larger. On my machine, zooming in hides the menubar.
