Computer Font size

Hello all I am a new linux user (Redhat 7) and I am trying to learn how to operate the system. I have a couple problems one the font size for all windows withing the OS are too small and even though I found a couple places to configure font size I can't find where to change the font size for the overall OS. Changing the resolution would achive my purpose I think. Its in 1024x768 but I don't know how to change it Smilie

My second problem is installing programs does anyone know where I can find useful information on the basics of systems management on the net? BESIDES the FAQ I've read through it already.

Any help is greatly apprecited

XTOTROFF(1)						      General Commands Manual						       XTOTROFF(1)

NAME
xtotroff - convert X font metrics into GNU troff font metrics SYNOPSIS
xtotroff [ -rresolution ] [ -spoint-size ] [ -v ] FontMap It is possible to have whitespace between a command line option and its parameter. DESCRIPTION
xtotroff takes a FontMap, which maps groff fonts to X11 fonts, creates GNU troff metric files for all fonts listed. Each line in FontMap consists of GNU troff font name and an X font name (XLFD) pattern, separated by whitespace. Example: TB -adobe-times-bold-r-normal--*-*-*-*-p-*-iso8859-1 The wildcards in the patterns are filled with the arguments to the -r and -s switches. If a font name is still ambiguous, xtotroff aborts. OPTIONS
-rresolution Set the resolution for all font patterns in FontMap. The value is used for both the horizontal and vertical resolution. If not specified, a resolution of 75dpi is assumed. -spoint-size Set the point size for all font patterns in FontMap. If not specified, a size of 10pt is assumed. -v Print the version number. BUGS
The only supported font encodings are `iso8859-1' and `adobe-fontspecific'. SEE ALSO
