Ubuntu – How to increase text size


the option at the login screen indeed makes the text bigger and easier to read but it only seem to be in effect for the login screen. When I login to the desktop, everything is back to normal size. Is this supposed to behave this way?

Your answer will be appreciated. Thanks.
