Those are actually two areas which you can configure independently. According to this MSDN article,

To change settings:

  1. Go to Tools – Options – Environment - Fonts and Colors
  2. Under Show settings for: select either Statement Completion or Editor Tooltips (for Parameter Info and Quick Tips)
  3. Change either the font or font size

I do not have access to earlier version of Visual Studio right now but this seems to work in both Visual Studio 2010 and 2012. I have included some screenshots to help you.

For the actual autocomplete:

Tools – Options – Environment - Fonts and Colors

Result of the change in Visual Studio 2012

For the tooltip:

    After that, you may need to restart Visual Studio to see affected changes.
