Their defaults live in files, one system-wide and one per-user. The system-wide resources typically live in the /etc/X11/Xresources directory, one file for each application, the user-specific ones, which override the system-wide ones typically live in your home directory, in one file, ~/.Xresources. The idea is that the distribution and the sysadmin set the baseline and each user can change those things which don't fit for her. The Arch Linux wiki  has, as often, a pretty good overview for that, with links for specific Xterm examples. I set my preferred Xterm putting this in my .Xresources (NOTE: leading space here for clarity -- remove that! *VT100.faceName: Liberation Sans Mono *VT100.faceSize: 8 *VT100.faceSize1: 3 *VT100.faceSize2: 5 *VT100.faceSize3: 8 *VT100.faceSize4: 10 *VT100.faceSize5: 14 *VT100.faceSize6: 20 Thus you can set the sizes of all fonts offered to you in that menu ("unreadable", "tiny" ... "huge"). Note also that the sizes given here might be a tad too small for you: I'm a bit myopic myself :-D Cheers  https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/X_resources -- t
