Edit Metadata dialog too big

Hi
I have noticed that when I go into Edit Metadata I can no longer see [OK] etc at the bottom of the screen The dialog is too big for my screen - so I ave to tab round to it and [OK] blindly.
I have tried to up the screen resolution on my laptop but this makes no difference.
I don't know when this happened as I haven't edited any metadata in a while - but I can't see a solution?
I'm on Windows 10. I have been using Calibre for years and this is the first problem I've seen.

Can't you just resize and move the window? It can be awkward with a touchpad; so, use mouse?

Is this an installed version of calibre or a portable version, I ask because I had a similar problem with portable a few weeks ago, but installed was okay. It was solved by me decommissioning the computer, hence didn't report it

Holy smoke - how embarrrasing. That's counter intuitive but of course it worked. I grabbed a frame and made the dialog smaller so the [OK] buttons etc cam into view !

Many thanks and apologies.

Wow!

Wow! Learned something new about windows. Thought I could only resize windows that had resize icons. Window size does remain the same after Calibre restart. Will check if it works after reboot. Thanks!
