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:
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.

You could try ToolsOptionsGeneral and change the default font and size at
"Standard Font" Notes: you will have to close and restart 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.
