Bug Description

In my desktop unity8 is clearly in the wrong resolution:
 - the font in the titlebar is quite pixelated
 - the cursor is huge

It would be required to have a setting like the one in unity7 to set the correct resolution of the screen.

<>: “ ‘Resolution:’ radio menu should have options for each available resolution for the display…”

Confirmed: No resolution configuration GUI however that's not the problem. If you're using an LCD then there is only one correct resolution.

Font problems -> bug 1536751
Cursor size -> You might need to log a new bug for that, as I can see that many people will find the large cursor ugly.

Font problems -> I'm not sure that mine (1366 * 768) could be considered a low DPI screen, can it?

Fabio: "low DPI" is a poorly chosen term, almost passive-aggressive, that describes any _normal_ resolution where you can actually see individual pixels. Us calling it "low DPI" should not diminish the importance of supporting it correctly :)
