It may be because you have a relatively large screen and/or your screen
is set to a relatively high resolution. If so, this has been a
long-standing issue: Video drivers set the size of screen object based
on pixels. Of course those objects should be sized instead according to
their visibility to humans. To fix this, you could set the screen to an
inferior resolution. Or perhaps there is a setting in the video driver
to make screen objects larger. Some apps also have settings for larger
icons and/or text.
