Lightroom Classic: Panel expansion & dpi scaling problems on Windows 10

Migrated from macosx to windows 10.

Panels do not expand like in OsX. 
Adobe help more or less suggested opting for a forum thread.

There is an odd relation to max panel expansion width, with different innate Win10 DPI scaling settings. 

Panels in these comperative screenshots are at widest expansion.
No alt-rightClick was possible.Just regular right click - drag.

The main monitor is an LG31MU96 4096x2160 'cine'-4K
Have no-clue whether LR on Win10 operates differently on a 'normal' 4k - 3840 x 2160px

 

It's apparent that 100% and 125% are seemingly similar.
As well as 150% and 175%.


IF anyone has managed how-to custom DPI Scale Lightroom only (with a different DPI setting than widows), please do provide with additional info.


Also, 
Curves (Tone Curve) drop-down menu, on the Develop module, under 'point curve', operate immensely different on Win10 to macOsX;
Curves selection is something un-scrollable, specially comparing to the UI implementation of macosx's style. It might have 0 gpu acceleration but it has some minute differences and useful implementations.
 There should be a way to scroll fast and effectively, apart from changing via letters, and navigating your curves library, in Windows10 as well.

Alt-dragging the panel borders broke with Windows 10:

Too bad, since that would be a decent workaround to this bug.

I suspect this problem is very closely related to this bug report, where LR's plugin SDK returns incorrect information when Windows display scaling is set to something other than 100%:

I need to add this revised thought regarding the Point Curve popping menu:


Point Curve drop down menu is amazingly bad on windows 10.
It's inexplicably and absurdly awful. 

This is an unacceptable way to fiddle around various Curves, while trying to preview many of them, or 2-3-4 variations of a certain one.

For instance, you need to go to Provia 100F. You cannot scroll till there with such an abhorring scrolling mechanism and GUI. You can reach the curve faster by pressing  "p" . Then scrolling or using keys. IF you need to go to Provia 100F+, 100F-, etc, etc,  Unlike the macosX implementation of the GUI, where once you press on the selected curve, you're being shown exactly that, here it's a reset. You need to go again from the first curve.
Amazingly bad design. 

Videocapture https://youtu.be/QsJcJzS9_8M provides the obvious.

Please, do find a way to fix this.
Even if it's microsoft's issue.
