...I would like to change the font itself, and its size, and the spacing between menu items - it's too cluttered up.

From memory (as I am on a different computer at the moment), proceed to Settings > All >Look and Feel > fonts, which should lead you to another dialog, the font selection dialog, but you will pick the font for the items Menu title and Menu entry; the dialog will show you a sample of the chosen font. The settings won't become final until you pick Apply then OK will exit out of that dialog.


edit: It's Settings > Settings Panel > Look > Fonts  and in the font settings dialog, remember to pick Advanced  and in the next dialog you will be able to pick the fonts for Menu item & Menu title. Seems you have to play around with it so that the spacing won't appear too cluttered, which is a matter of personal preference in any case.

Unsolicited advice for learning linux, that won't cost you anything
