Default Top Menu (file, edit, view,...) appears cut off on screen

My menu at the top appears cut off (see attached image). All the functions work normally, it is just annoying. It used to not be this way but suddenly Pro Tools started showing it like this and I have no idea how to get it back to normal.

When I start up Pro Tools, it appears normal but the moment everything is done loading and the dashboard appears it changes. I think it has something to do with my external monitor I use (it's an older TV with HDMI connectivity). But even when I'm not using an external monitor I still get the problem.

I also think everything in general is smaller than it should be (see attached image 2).

Does anyone know how to put it back to normal?

I think you just have to maximize the session window (not the whole Pro Tools, the floating Windows inside) and it will adapt to the space available without interfering with the tool bar
