I have never seen this before:


Only the upper dropdowns/edits are active, the other seem a shadow copy.

This is under VS 17.4.4, happened once, and interestingly in all 4 open VS instances at the same time. Closing/reopening a document window would not change anything.

After closing all VS instances, all went back to normal.

We have one other user who has just run into something that looks identical, but so far no idea what the trigger is.

Are you working with a single monitor or multiple monitors? If you are working with multiple monitors, do they have different DPI or refresh rate settings? This sort of reminds me of some DPI problems we had, but all of those are supposed to be fixed.

Dual monitor, different DPI, but using VS only on one monitor always.

No particular sign that its monitor or DPI driven then.

Any thoughts on a possible trigger? Or does this seem completely random?

Might be related to hibernating but cant confirm. Happened only once so far, but my feeling is that its related to the bug where the nav bar goes off the editor window and gets stuck to the screen top, but thats just gut feeling.

For easy reference, the other report of this is here, but no good idea for why that this happens there either:
