Hi apelrusak,

yes, you can! macOS Sierra: Make it easier to see what’s on the screen shows you some ways to make text easier to read.

You can also increase your system font size by going to:

System Preferences>Display> select "Scaled" next to Resolution and select "Larger Text" [assuming you have a Retina Display]

For non-Retina models or external displays you choose "Scaled" next to Resolution and select a smaller screen resolution.

Hope I could help you.

thank you thechosenone. If use scale --> the whole screen will become not sharp and will not look good, I only want to increase the system font size and the google search font size, because it's small and hard to read, looks like apple doesn't have any solution...
