Can I some how change the resolution of VirtualBox Manager? And yes, I mean the manager itself, not the machines it controls. See example picture to compare to Notepad++.

Have you got some other Qt based application installed on your host that is affecting the settings?

Here is the corresponding view of my Windows 10 host running VirtualBox 6.0.6:

I think the problem might be that the VirtualBox doesn't know how to scale the window size. My main screen is my laptop screen which is quite a bit smaller than my secondary screen. On laptop screen it looks fine. Other programs (like Notepad++) knows how to scale when moved from one window to another.

Are we talking a HiDPI versus a non-HiDPI second screen?
