Try this:

Right click on the empty desktop, then choose Properties.
Click on the Settings tab.
Click the Advanced button.
On the General tab, look at the DPI setting. If it is set to Large Size choose Normal size. If is set to Normal size, then choose a custom size smaller than 96 DPI.
Click on Apply. It may say you need to reboot.

Or just increase the screen resolution.

Yes, that is another option, but I would not recommend it for an LCD monitor.

And where does it say LCD monitor in the OP's post? Actually, LCD monitors look best when the screen resolution is increased to the maximum of the monitor.
