    Windows doesn't support high-dpi screens in the same way as OS X, but you can make the native resolution more usable while retaining a crisp image by using a high dpi setting:
    Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Larger - 150%

    Im guessing you haven't installed the windows drivers yet because my screen was like yours until I did so.

    If you dont know how to do that, this video will show you how.
