Globally forcing DPI to an arbitrary high value will enlarge all screen
elements. There are various methods for forcing DPI, but the one I use on
virtually every installation is putting DisplaySize in either xorg.conf or
50-monitor.conf. Sample values for more common screen resolutions are in
http://fm.no-ip.com/Share/DisplaySize which for 3200x1800 can only be a guide
to how DisplaySize can work. Be aware that if you are using Firefox that DPI
192 or above is likely to produce perplexing results that may need to be
dealt with separately through hidden prefs in about:config.

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
