I figured out a fix!
The negative space on the sides of the admin pages has always annoyed the bejeezus out of me. Old shopify was never like that and I could easily see product variant names, prices, quantities and skus all within the page, no scroll bar required. And then slowly over time, shopify began shrinking the admin panel, while also adding more product information, such as on hand, committed, unavailable... making me have to scroll even further to see info I needed. Widescreen Shopify Admin was a blessing!
I've been out of work for awhile due to illness and I just logged onto shopify and immediately noticed the negative space was back. I WILL NOT HAVE THAT!
Shopify changed their admin URL from myshopify.com/admin to admin.shopify.com, so you just need to edit the extension to reflect this.
I am a totally noob to programming and extension and such but I figured out a fix for this extension, you just need to follow some pretty easy instructions. I'll write out the instructions on how to do it specifically for the the Widescreen Shopify Admin extension, but I also linked the page for editing general extensions at the bottom of this.

Hope that works as it did for me! Once you get it up and running again, if on Mac, you can hit command + - to scale the page down, which allows you to see even more info on the admin page, and I managed to get the horizontal scroll bar to disappear completely... living the shopify dream.
