A large portion of the tagging sub-menu now unreachable after update #11851

qBittorrent version and Operating System

qBittorrent version 4.2.1 and Windows 10 Home Edition 64-bit

What is the problem

I just updated it from v4.1.7 to v4.2.1 yesterday and I encountered an issue. The tagging sub-menu (when you right-click a torrent) now overflows horizontally to the right past the screen edge and also spills into my taskbar. In other words, it's cut-off past the screen edge. I cannot select/unselect any tags that is past the screen anymore as there is no arrow, scrollbar, or anything to navigate past that point.

There seem to be now a quite substantial spacing between columns on tags sub-menu compared to my previous version. Prior to the update, I had like thousand tags so this is kind of a deal-breaker. No new tags, let alone a longer one, were created at the time this issue were discovered immediately after the update.

For the reference, my desktop monitor's resolution is set to the maximum at 2560x1440.

What is the expected behavior

Tags sub-menu should not over-flow past the edge of screen, especially not without any way to navigate with scrollbar or arrows. Even moving the selection highlight past the cut-off point does not scroll the sub-menu in any way.

Steps to reproduce

Create tags until the tags sub-menu expands past the screen edge.

Extra info (if any)

I looked around and I see there is dpiawareness in a config file. At first, I thought maybe that had been changed but it seem unlikely given the file timestamp as it shows the file last modified 3 years ago. I also doubt that DPI scaling has anything to do with spacing especially since font size looked about same compared to v4.7.1. No changes had been made to display settings since or before the update.

Not sure what other information I need to provide but let me know if you need any other specific information. But a screenshot is attached.

Any suggestions or solutions to this issue? Any assistance you can provide on this would be much appreciated. Cheers!

Small update: It turned out that the part about it spilling into behind the taskbar was not isolated to this software as I encountered this also with a game. It is actually an issue unrelated to qBittorrent and restarting explorer.exe fixed that. Guess that was a hiccup on part of Windows. So, one down, one to go!
