Window too big

I have used Musescore on two different laptops and I'm only having the problem with my Dell laptop. The window is too big to fit in the whole screen and for some reason I cant resize it. When I fullscreen it, I still cant see the bottom of the window. This screws up the autoscroll function so I can't see the bottom of the page when the music is playing. Its really very annoying.

I assume that's WIndows; what version? And if you set the score zoom to 100%, is it too big also - should be the same size as the paper it would be printed on? If everything is too big, you need to change the scaling settings in your OS (eg, set it to "system enhanced"), or else use the "-D xxx" command line option to specify the true resolution in DPI= (type that instead of xxx). Or set the environment variable QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR to 1. Unfortunately every system is different, so some trial and error may be necessary to find the right combination for your particular configuration. If you need further help please ask on the Support forum, where others with a similar configuration might be able to offer more specific advice.

Title Window too big Musescore 4. Window cannot be reduced in width beyond a certain point

Using W10 on my pc, Musescore 3 (MS3) would allow me to adjust the width (and height) of the MS window as desired, when I exited full screen. I could then reduce the width of the MS window, at will, in order to view next to it, to the side, the window of any pdf score I wanted to compare. However, MS 4 limits the amount I can reduce the width of its window. Thus it overlaps the pdf screen next to it, and is very distracting.

That's be a new issue. But IIRC it has been reported already
