Thank you for your answer.

I'm sorry : I don't know what DPI settings means...

It's a setting that adjusts the size of interface elements on your screen. Hit the windows key and type "dpi" it should find the appropriate setting, open that and check what is the value.

I use the last version that is downloadable via the Wikia.

@ mikebo

I'm sorry, but if I use the windows button of my keyboard, it opens the Windows 10 main menu, not anything related to MusicBee...
I'm confused : may I ask you to explain me what to do ?

Thank you very much in advance !

Ok, first of all please download the skin for MBv3 https://www.dropbox.com/s/foh0z0x1xalcn70/MidnightMETRO3.xmlc?dl=0
also make sure you're running the latest beta http://musicbee.niblseed.com/V3_0/MusicBee3_Patched.zip

Dpi is a system setting, that's why I've asked you to open the start menu. Just search the system settings for dpi. I think that this may be causing this issue and maybe I could reproduce it and fix the problem.

Yes, that's correct.  DPI (dots per inch) is a windows setting, not a MusicBee setting.  Open the Windows 10 search bar via the windows key on the keyboard, and type in DPI.  That should take you to the DPI where you can see what DPI you're using and report back.   
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 or 3.6 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

I set up the files you gave me : no change.

I've run the search and I come across multiple files : which one is the one we are looking at ?


If it's DPIScalling (Application), then I ran it and it displayed an option concerning title bars on the desktop. Its value is 9.

Thanks !

Ok, forget about the search. In windows 10 you can open settings > display



tell me what is the percentage.

OK, I'll check later on my system if I can reproduce this issue and fix. Be patient :)

It's late, in France : I'm going to bed now. :D

It probably is indeed.
This is a more extreme example: http://getmusicbee.com/forum/index.php?topic=16643.msg104723#msg104723

the glitches for high dpi screens should be addressed now:
http://musicbee.niblseed.com/V3_0/MusicBee3_Patched.zip
unzip into the musicbee application folder and run MusicBee3.exe
