I have a 1440p Monitor and so far all I have been able to find is HiDPI Mode which cuts my pixels in half giving me the screen real-estate of just 720p. My friend bought a 4K monitor and it automatically gives him the same option as on the retina macbook pro (on his hackintosh)

It looks like this



Surely there must be a way to enable this somehow. I want to have the same real estate as 1080p while keeping my native resolution of 1440p

If anyone can help it would be much appreciated :)

There used to be a way to scale the system with a terminal command. I used to do it when I had my Dell 10v netbook running snow leopard because it was only a 1024x600 screen and some apps didn't fit. But after looking it up, it seems apple removed that from future system versions.

Does anyone know a similar way to do this?
