With the Type tool selected, clicking on the Font menu (in the Options bar) displays a preview of the typeface to the right of the Font name. Because it can be difficult to make a design decision with such a small preview, you can choose to view the preview larger by selecting Type > Font Preview Size > and choosing your preferred size from the list. (Note, in previous versions of Photoshop, I believe that there was a preference to change the size of the font preview.) In addition, you can cycle through the available fonts on your system by selecting the name of the current typeface and pressing the up and down arrow. Or, just type in the name of your desired font.

    I wish I could click on something and make all the tools etc larger like the font preview.

    I am so happy you posted this! My ‘mature’ eyes have such a hard time trying to see the fonts. I couldn’t find the ‘font size’ feature in Preferences in CS6! Thank you so much!
