It looks you should still be able to adjust and increase the scale/size of the piano roll using the inverted "handles" that are at the ends of the highlighted keys and adjacent to the main keys on the piano roll.

Sorry, I'm sure that's the maximum size I can get.

I've attached a screencast that starts with a track similar to your screenshot.

To make the piano roll/notes larger I first increase the size of the track and then reduce the section of piano roll that is visible using the "handles" I referred to.

Have you tried both of those approaches?

Thanks for uploading that screencast. I will mark this issue as confirmed based on it even though I cannot reproduce. This seems to be specific to high resolution screens/scaling. Unfortunately I don't have the ability to test/debug this issue atm but hopefully someone will soon be able to as it is rather crucial!
