The format of the window while playing, can be customized with menu settings/live-display. If the option at the top is not checked then you will stay in the score editor window while playing. If you find the instrument fingering disturbing then uncheck that option. The option "show lyrics in score" will show the text beneath each set of staff lines like it is in a songbook. The lyrics font size applies to the small lyrics in the score while the karaoke font size applies to the large lyrics in the karaoke window.
With the karaoke area size you can set the size of the karaoke window. A size of zero will show now karaoke and a large score window. A size of 6000 will show no score and a large karaoke window.
