Power Query Pop Up Window does not correctly function

Hi everyone ! New to the community and starting to leverage Power Query as an useful data cleanse and connector tool.


Here my trouble in one screenshot:


Has anyone the solution to this ? I have already tried to :

1. Update all MS Office package to the latest version

2. Go to "parametre d'affichage" to the bottom right corner of Excel (settings of the displaying workbook) and change to both of them, restart, nothing changes

3. Reebot my professional laptop (twice)

4. I went to Excel options and tried to modify all settings related to the display of whatever I could change. nothing.

5. Explorethe community's answers to the problem. Nothing apparently works.


Useful suggestions ? It would be such a shame not to be able to leverage it on Excel and only on Power BI. Yes, on Power BI I have no such a problem. Only on Excel.

is it because my laptop is a professional one and the IT admin might have changed smt ?


Many thanks in advance !

I've seen that, but never after a reboot. Perhaps your Scale and Layout percentage could be changed?


Power Query is a .NET app so it doesn't understand the Windows 10 modern interface settings. Old Win32 stuff. Tinker with that and see if it helps.
