Unable to see pop ups/notifications on browsers

Hiya, I am not sure if this is the correct place, but I recently installed Windows 10 on Workstation Player 16, but as you can see from the following picture, everything that requires a permission? notification or a pop up? Not sure what the best word is for them, it's completely invisible on all browsers, Edge, Opera/Opera GX/Chrome and Firefox, I swapped to VirtualBox and I had no issues at all, so any help is appreciated or a push in the right direction to go with this? Thank you

This problem's been around for a while now. Workaround is to disable 3D acceleration.

Hi,

Ender is right, disabling 3D acceleration is the workaround.

There's two ways for that.. disable it for the whole VM or.. the IMO better alternative is to disable the setting in your browser(s) to not use GPU hardware acceleration.
