Canvas 16:9 1366x768 layout on larger screens

Im new to PowerApps, i noticed the Canvas app at 16:9 defaults to 1366x768 (see attached). 

 

If you are on a larger monitor ie: 1920 or 3840, does everything remain in absolute positioning? Or is it recommended to set the app to a custom size such as 1920? Just curious to see how best to stretch the app to use up the space? 

 

Lastly what is the point of setting the height if the browser scrolls?

By default PowerApps is set to automatically scale the screen up or down to fit the actual screen real estate.  But that can leave you with spaces on the sides or the top and bottom.  You can turn that automatic scaling off and modify the X,y,width, and height settings on things like screens to have them adapt to the screen resolution.  Its a fair amount more work, but provides a much more consistent result if you are careful.
