    Hold down control, and play with your scroll wheel.

    Or if you don't have an external mouse with a scroll wheel:
    If you are using IE go to the view menu and then to text size.
    If you are using Opera go to the view menu and then zoom.
    If you are using Firefox, get Opera.

    Edit: I beat you spike :)
    Edit2: Spike is probably right and you weren't talking about in browser. So follow his advice, or see if somehow its running at the wrong resolution. Desktop right click -> properties -> settings.

    Decrease the resolution (last resort)


    display properties -> settings tab -> advanced -> increase the dpi setting

    EDIT: I assumed you were talking about even the desktop - if it's just in your web browser, follow SNGX's advice above.
