Look in the file Rconsole (the default place is rw0990\etc\Rconsole,
but you can have a personal copy).  That contains:

   ## Font.
   # Please use only fixed width font.
   # If font=FixedFont the system fixed font is used; in this case
   # points and style are ignored. If font begins with "TT ", only 
   # True Type fonts are searched for.
   font = TT Courier New
   points = 10
   style = normal # Style can be normal, bold, italic

and you need to alter `points' and re-start the R console.

One day we may have a configuration editor (it is on the TODO list)
but for now you need to edit this file.
