Noticed the desktop icons, task bar, text, open app windows, all seem bigger than what I saw in windows 7 with my 1920x1200 resolution. Anyone else notice this?

You probably triple clicked your mouse, and then changed their size. In my laptop if I double click with my one hand and then move my another hand I can change the website size in web browser, change the shortcut's size in desktop.

Try my advice. Triple click your mouse and then kinda like scroll with your other hand
