That number is called "native resolution", for a 23" it is normally 1920x1080 and it is declared on the manua or can be found with the exact model.
The best settings is always to have the LCD screen run at native resolution and then as allen2 pointed out, adapt the size of text, icons, etc. to fit your likings.
The settings for Windows 7 (I think 8 would be the same) are in DPI, see:
Small (100%) = 96
Medium (125%) = 120
Larger (150%) = 144
See also this:
(there may be additional issues with a few fonts that have "special versions" for different DPI)

Thanks allen2, and jaclaz for the replies. Late last evening I was reading some literature that came with the mouse. It referenced different DPI settings. Maybe it is just a matter of setting the mouse for bigger sizing, after I reset the display to 1920 X 1080 I will check it out this evening after work. Thanks, Mike
Mouse settings are a very different thing, and actually a re-known "can of worms", the good MS guys even invented (unneededly/senselessly) a new unit of measure for it, the "mickey", ONLY for the fun of it, see :
The settings we are talking about are in Control Panel-> Display (not in "Mouse").
