Any software included with an LCD display will do a couple of things. First of all it will tell Windows what setting are compatible with your monitor. Second, there may be other value added programs that help with things like color matching, temperature settings, etc.
Right click an empty spot on your desktop and choose properties> advanced. Check what resolution and refresh rate you are currently using and see if Windows actually recognizes your model.

If you find text to be small there are other settings to adjust that.
