I rented a 4K movie from iTunes Store in iTunes for Windows. But the resolution seemed not to be 4K when it started playing. (My monitor is 2K)

I checked the preferences of iTunes and found something strange. There doesn't seem to be any 4K options.

I believe that you cannot play 4K with iTunes for Windows. According to Apple.com, 4K content requires macOS, iOS, or tvOS.

Additionally, note that even on supported platforms, 4K content cannot be downloaded. It can only be streamed. If a movie is downloaded before playing it (or if it's playing off an in-progress download), it will never be higher than 1080p, regardless of the platform.
