At high resolutions like 1920x1080 and above the fonts will be small. A good font hinting setting and anti-aliasing setting like Rgba will really help.Instructions:
Please avoid a manual install and use the GNOME Tweak Tool, it's much easier.
You can use the gnome-shell theme extension for easier switching of themes.GNOME Tweak Tool
