    Hello @wpf new developer

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum.

    Sometimes this issue is caused by the Graphic card. Could you please check your Graphic card by using some software tools(maybe)? Please also kindly check if this similar thread: WPF's xaml Display Abnormal helps.

    Best Regards,

    When the problem reappears, go to menu, Tools, Options, Environment, General, and try different settings for “Use hardware graphics accelerations…” and other options related to visual experience.
