Default Shape size on screen

I use Visio for user interface design.
I order to have a correct design, I define the page size according to the
real screen size (E.g size of 17" screen) and work with drawing scale of 1:1,
but in this case the actual size of shapes on my screen is larger than it
should be according to the shape parameters. (The size of 1 inch is about
1.14 inch on the screen)
How can I see the same real dimensions both in the shape properties and on
screen without using the zoom function ?

As far as I know Visio doesn't know your actual physical screen size,
it can only work with the number of pixels. You could be projecting
the screen image onto a wall.
