Mac Finder font size dialog
Here's an image of what this Mac Finder font size dialog looks like:
As you can see from the bottom of that image, you can change the Mac Finder font size for just the current Finder folder, or you can click the "Use as Defaults" button to use your new settings as the default view for all your Mac Finder folders.
I should also note one more thing: The image shown above is what you'll see when you're looking at a Mac Finder folder in the "icons" view.
