Default How do I change font size of the formula bar itself?

(I'm setting up a new computer and in Excel the formula bar font is too
small. How do I increase the font size of the formula bar display itself (not
the cell it is showing)?

Thumbs up Answer: How do I change font size of the formula bar itself?

Sure, I can help you with that! Here are the steps to change the font size of the formula bar in Excel:
  1. Open Excel and click on the "File" tab in the top left corner.
  2. Click on "Options" in the left-hand menu.
  3. In the Excel Options window, click on "General" in the left-hand menu.
  4. Under "User Interface options", you will see a drop-down menu for "Font size". Click on the drop-down menu and select the font size you want for the formula bar.
  5. Click "OK" to save your changes.

That's it! The font size of the formula bar should now be larger and easier to read. If you want to change the font size of other elements in Excel, such as the column headers or row numbers, you can do so in the same "General" options menu.

Default How do I change font size of the formula bar itself?

You could try ToolsOptionsGeneral and change the default font and size at
"Standard Font"

Notes: you will have to close and re-start Excel

More notes: existing workbooks when opened will have the new font in the
formula bar but not in the worksheet.

New workbooks will have that font in formula bar and worksheets and in the row
and column headers..

Evidently this doesn't apply to Excel 2007 as I find no
"ToolsOptionsGeneral" in Excel 2007. Any ideas for Excel 2007?

Thanks for ANY ideas.

ButtonExcel Options

You will find what you are looking for under "When creating new workbooks."

BTW...............have you not yet explored through Excel Options?

There are quite a few standard options that can be set here, like under
"Advanced" and "Formulas"

Might be a good idea to have a look through these before you go any farther.

I created a video about changing the font size of the formula bar and still having normal size row and column headings and normal cell font size.

I might improve the technique with the hint of both a book template and a sheet template.
