Windows 7: Sizes of fonts, windows, buttons, etc, slightly larger than XP

Sizes of fonts, windows, buttons, etc, slightly larger than XP

So I just installed Windows 7 Pro x64 on my work laptop. Had been running XP x64. I'm noticing that everything is slightly larger on my Windows 7 install. Everything from the fonts, to the windows, buttons, graphics...everything. I double checked everything, including the proper screen resolution to start with, then the DPI scaling. I have down to 100% which is all the lower it can go. There's nothing else I can find that can be adjusted. When I search online it's hard finding any solutions because everything comes up with screen resolution, etc. I'm not sure how to scale everything down, but that's basically what I'm looking to do. Everything is scaled by just a little bit, but it's enough to notice in every program I run. Any ideas?
