When I open Edit >> Preferences, this is how it looks. Despite the task bar being unlocked and hidden, I can't see Ok and Cancel button. Can't resize the preferences window, hence can't save the changes I made.

OS: Windows 10 Pro - 64bit

Lightroom Classic Version 11.4

I tried different resolutions against prompting against it (by the OS), but that didn't solve the problem.

I tried running Lighroom in Windows 8 Compatibility mode but that's not working either.

Looks like your monitor resolution is set too low to meet the Lightroom Classic specs.

Though the minimum required screen size is 1024 x 768, people have reported a number of problems like this at this size.  There are issues even at the next size, 1280 x 1024.  Some workarounds:

 

- Typing Esc will invoke the Cancel button and close the window. Typing Enter / Return invokes OK to save your changes and close the window.

 

- Make sure you've got Windows display scaling set at 100%. (You almost certainly do, but double-check.) Right-click the Windows desktop and do Display Settings and set Scale And Layouter to 100%.

Regarding the window you attached as a screen shot: There is no more to that window. You are seeing all options, right down to the last one. And it’s a window, not a dialog box, so there is no OK and Cancel button there.

 

There may be an issue with not being sure if you can see the bottom of the window, but every available option is shown there.

 

What does it show for the Presets tab? That one is much deeper, and the bottom section (Lightroom Defaults) has nine buttons. Do you see all of those?

Unlike on Mac, on Windows the Preferences window has OK and Cancel buttons at the bottom right and Restart Lightroom Classic button at the bottom left.  

 

On a 1024 x 768 screen at 100% Windows scaling and the default font size, other than the OK, Cancel, and Restart buttons, the only thing that's totally cut off in Preferences is the Performance > More Performance Tips and the bottom of the expanded Sync Activity section.

Thanks, I stand corrected…I was looking at a Mac, and did not realize this is one of the places where the two platforms are different in Lightroom Classic.
