1. Has occurred as the result of upgrading to Windows 10.  
2. Has been the same for both VS2013 and VS2015 and has occurred in the VS text editor.  
3. Effect will occurs for all VS window types so far.
4. It most likely to has something to do with Windows 10 and my monitor.

I probably should've mentioned that you can also run DxDiag from Visual Studio's Help > About box.

Hello Krakinz,

Thank you for reporting this issue. I’d like to ask two things of you:

1. Disable hardware acceleration in Visual Studio and see if this fixes the problem. Click Tools > Options > Environment > General. Uncheck “Automatically adjust visual experience based on client performance,” and then uncheck “Use hardware graphics acceleration if available.” Click OK, then try to reproduce the issue.

2. Send us the output from DxDiag. Press Win+R and type “dxdiag”. Click OK. Let DxDiag run then click the “Save All Information” button to safe the output to a file.

Thanks for helping make Visual Studio a better product.
