I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I found two useful settings

I found settigns for Text Results (shown in the screenshot) and [All Text Tool Windows]
I think one or other of those might do what you're looking for.

You can also hold CTRL and scroll your mouse wheel to quickly change font size in the editor and window and Messages tab (not Results tab though). That way, you can leave it normally at the regular size and scroll a larger font when needed.

I would like to set the Message text default size to 14, however, not affect the query window?  Is this possible?

Thanks Doug for that tip

Noted that it also works in the text results tab.

Don't believe you can change one and not the other. They are synced.
