I've just installed Fedora 31 xfce on a new lenovo laptop. xfwm4-4.14.1.

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1366 x 768, maximum 16384 x 16384
eDP connected primary 1366x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y 
axis) 344mm x 194mm
    1366x768      60.06*+

DPI is set to 96.

Fonts are monospace 10.

Appearance->Windows Scaling->1x(no scaling)

The window text and icons are too big. Hard to describe. I've attached a 
screenshot, but not sure it will work with the mailing list.

If I do Windows Scaling 2x , I obviously get a worse effect. Want I want 
is Windows Scaling 0.75x !

  In my last laptop xfce provided much more compact windows.
