I ran across this tonight and was just about to report it too, then I found this bug exists.
When I open the GettingStarted.html file in Edge itself, everything looks fine. After Googling around a little bit I found this page that indicates that the browser controls on Windows don't pick up HighDPI settings for some reason. There is a solution on the page but it looks weirdly low-level.
We have replaced the Getting Started pages with new Overview pages that are HDPI. Marking this as resolved.
