One simple way:

Run R (the gui version)
Click on the Edit menu
Click on the GUI Preferences item.

Select the font, size, style, colors, etc. that you want. If you click on Save then these become the new default. If you click on Apply, but don't save then they will last that session but not be the new defaults.
