I'm new to the Mac world and have a MacBoko Pro 2021 M1 14". Yesterday I tried Lightroom Classic for the first time on Mac. It is lightning fast, but I have an issue with the UI and side panels: they're huge. They could be half the width. The navigator is almost as big as the photo itself:

My problem is that I can only make the panels bigger, not smaller (not even with "option"+drag on the panel wall). The text size is already set to "small" in the preferences. Setting the MBP's display resolution from "standard" to "more space" kind of works, but the panels are still pretty big and all the other elements on the Mac almost too small for me. I did a fair bit of googling, but most people seem to want to make them bigger, not smaller. I also directly contacted the Adobe Support, and was told to post here.
I did not have the same issues on my Windwows machines, which all have a lower resolution. There, the panels etc are reasonably sized:
