Because this is a 16" screen 1920x1080 is nice but everything is so small and spaced out.

What monitor do you have that is 16" and supports 1920x1080. Mine does this resolution, but it's a 23" widescreen.

Or you could leave it at the native resolution and increase the DPI,

DPI Display Size Settings - Change

This is an HP HDX 16t series notebook with a 16" screen with a 1920x1080 resolution. I really don't think installing the latest NVidia drivers will solve this.
