Windows 10 munged my Visual Studio

I have Visual Studio Professional 2012 version 11.0.61030.00 Update 4.

I updated my computer to Windows 10. Big mistake. Now some stuff doesn't even work, but aside from that, my Visual Studio munges the view of the screen:

munged vs
It's really an accident waiting to happen whether I'm stepping through or inserting code, it all of a sudden discombobulates the text on the screen and stuff visually disappears. If I Minimize the window and reopen it, it is back to normal, temporarily.

Any ideas?

thanks!

Uninstall Visual Studio, restart and install it again. That is a standard tap dance for any number of applications after installing Windows 10.

Having done this tap dance for Office, Adobe, NCP and a few other applications, my Windows 10 machine is working well.

I'll give that a shot, thanks! I guess I should go forward and not back. Sigh.

But there is one app that just won't work with Windows 10 and I guess that's their issue. It no longer recognizes my license.

I guess I created a restore point, so if it gets worse, I can go back.

thanks!

I did one better, I uninstalled VS2012 and installed VS2015 hoping that would work. No.

Oh well.
