Tools - Options - View

Here you can set some options that will influence the UI:

- "Scaling"
Uses percentile scaling for font size in user interface elements, such 
as dialogs and icon labels. The Scaling setting does not affect the font 
size of text in a document.

- "Use system font for user interface"
Specifies to use the system font to display all menus and dialogs. Else 
another installed font is used.

BTW:
It's not possible to set a specific font and/or size for displaying the 
UI in OOo.

=================
It's hopefully possible
Tools > Options > OpenOffice.org > View
unselect "Use system fonts for user interface"
then
Tools > Options > OpenOffice.org > Fonts
select "Apply replacement table"

the default font (not documented) is
Andale Sans UI (comes from StarOffice 5.1 I guess, and not appearing in the really installed
fonts :-) may be developers will have to see there later, it's a mystery for the tester but
non-coder that i'm.


so
in the left line "Font", put Andale Sans UI
right "replace with": choose the font you wish
select Always and Screen
OK

but you'll notice that the font used by default, DejaVu Sans is  the widest one.

about size, answer was given 

Tools > Options > OpenOffice.org > View 
Scaling 125%

see there too
