Make desktop fonts/icons bigger by right clicking on the desktop, 
choosing Desktop Settings, go into the 'Icons' tab and adjust the size. 
To change fonts of other things, go into Main Menu>Settings>Settings 
Manager>Appearance, and change font settings under the 'Fonts' tab. The 
'Window Manger' settings dialog in the xfce settings manager can be used 
to set window title fonts.
