What do you have set up for windows display scaling (the dialog e.g. here
I need to have 200% because otherwise all the UI elements would be too
small on the HiDPI screen. Now Geany window gets resized alright, just the
"special" mouse cursors like the caret-like cursor in scintilla or back
arrow cursor on scintilla sidebar are not scaled and twice as small (in
both directions which makes the mouse cursor's area effectively 4x smaller).
