Seems like it could be a combination of different screen resolution, and improper docking properties of containers and controls on the form.  That's my best guess given the info you've provided.

We have seen some small discrepancies between what's displayed on XP vs Win7 vs Win8.  They tend to be small things, but present nonetheless.  These discrepancies appear to be the result of minor differences in the implementation of the .NET Framework between the OSes.  That said, I've not seen any problems on the scale you show here.

Since you've tried this application on a variety of machines and operating systems, I would guess the problem is machine-specific.  Have someone else log in to your bosses machine to see if the problem persists, or if there's some user-specific setting that might be causing the problem.  If the problem seems user-specific, look at your bosses display settings and see if he's doing something with font sizes, etc, that might be causing the issue.

My boss customize his windows 7

When I change the property autoscalemode to font none, the program works a little better, but the font looks bigger than the usual

There's no telling.  It's possible to tweak the XAML so changes in font size don't have such a big effect on the display, but it's intricate and time consuming, and will depend on what you're doing.  In short, there's no easy answer to this issue, other than maybe re-creating your boss' profile so that it has a default configuration.
