I installed Ubuntu in my Lenovo ThinkPad X60. Currently the screen resolution is set to 1024x768, which is the maximum resolution in the settings. Is it the hardware maximum resolution?

Compared to what has been in Windows XP, everything looks so big. How can I make them all small?

Maximum resolution for ThinkPad X60 is 1024x768, so you can't increase it.

You can change size of the text, that could help.

Run "Appearance" (if you have classic desktop, then from menu System → Preferences → Appearance, if you have Unity then run ** Dash** (Ubuntu button in top left corner) and search for "Appearance"). Navigate to Fonts where you can set size of all system fonts (or click on Details... to set DPI for whole system).
