What is this "unix" you speak of? Are you talking about a terminal? Xwindows? A particular application? They all have different mechanisms for setting the font.

Minal,
vi uses the font size of the terminal window. When you connect to UNIX, are you on the physical machine? If so, what do you type/click to get a terminal window? If not, what remote access tool do you use?

The answers to these will affect how you change the font size.

Your other thread indicates you are using Putty. You change the font size in Putty under Window --> Appearance. The change button lets you select a new font size.

In the terminology of this thread, you are using a remote client to access a UNIX system. This terminology (or just mentioning you are using Putty) may help you when asking future questions.
