This happens your operating system is not reporting the display resolution correctly, or at least in a way we are understanding correctly. Typically this happens when using a non-standard display like a TV set connected via VGA or some such. Solutions including starting MuseScore from the command line with "-D xxx" (where "xxx" is the actual display resolution in DPI), and/or setting the environment variable QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=1. If you're not familiar with starting programs from the command line or setting environment variables, you can do a web search for those topic, combined with the name of your OS (eg, Windows 10, macOS, Ubuntu, etc).
