Changing default font for the command windows from Courier to Consolas (10pt size) fixed this problem for me.

Command window in octave gui does not use all availabel space.
See attached screenshots on display 3840x2160 with scaling set at
comwin100.png (100%), comwin150.png (150%), and comwin200.png (200%). The white spce below the prompt is not being used
(if scroll, it would scroll text in those top lines already occupied).
A similar problem occur in horizontal space (e.g.
running a=(1:100) would wrap the line at about 20 in a window
that can accommodate ~50.

The problem becomes less noticeable at lower resolution, but it still there. At 1920x1200 I had to make the command window full heights tall to get a few lines of empty space at the bottom.
