You can just make the font bigger in dwm's config.h, and the border
size if you want. That's the extent to which dwm is involved, as
it's just a window manager.

I'm guessing you want other programs to do scaling - there are
different environment variables to set for different GUI toolkits,
this webpage gives a reasonable overview - set these in your
.xprofile or wherever you see fit:
