Have discovered a really small problem but it bothers me. The image window overlaps the menu on the left, files and folders. I can not get the mouse pointer to split so I can not move the image or resize. Does anyone know how I restore the image window so it does not overlap?

Troubleshooting steps: 1. Update your graphics driver by going directly to the manufacturer's web site and doing a clean uninstall/reinstall:https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-classic/kb/troubleshoot-gpu.html#solution-4  2. Try disabling the graphics processor by setting Preferences > Performance > Use Graphics Processor to Off. (This probably won't help but it's trivial to try.) 3. Set Windows display scaling to 100%.

Troubleshooting steps:

 

1. Update your graphics driver by going directly to the manufacturer's web site and doing a clean uninstall/reinstall:

https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-classic/kb/troubleshoot-gpu.html#solution-4 

 

2. Try disabling the graphics processor by setting Preferences > Performance > Use Graphics Processor to Off. (This probably won't help but it's trivial to try.)

 

3. Set Windows display scaling to 100%. Then in LR, set Preferences > Interface > Font Size to Automatic. LR has lots of problems on Windows when display scaling or the font size are other than 100%.

 

4. Try resetting LR's preferences:

LR sometimes soils its preferences file, and resetting it can fix all sorts of wonky behavior. That article explains how to restore the old preferences if resetting doesn't help.

I tried to set display scaling to 100 % and it´s worked, the windows are now right and I haven´t any overlaps.

Thanks

Glad you discovered the cause. It's unfortunate that, after all these years, LR still doesn't work correctly with display scaling.
