I have a Surface Book and the desktop icons and the cursor are tiny!  I can hardly read the icon text labels!

I tried "Change the size of text, apps, and other items" in Display Properties, setting #1 monitor; the laptop screen, to 150% but it didn't change the size of the desktop icons or the size of my cursor.  

My #2 screen is large so I haven't had to change the settings for it.
