How set default font size for labels and text boxes

When placing labels and text boxes on winforms they are coming up by default
in a size that is just a little too small. How do I change this so that in
the future they will come up with a bigger font size?

This also works if you change the default font size on the form.

Hi Woody,

You cannot change default font size for the Textbox in Visual Studio .NET
IDE. However, you can change the container's font property to achieve this.
For example, you can place a panel in the form and set the font of the
panel to your default size. After that, each time you drag a control onto
that panel, the control's default font size will be the same as the panel's.
If there's anything unclear, please feel free to reply to the post.

The form is a container.
