Drawing and text not working

I just installed the newest version of GIMP on my Windows 10 computer. When I draw with a brush, pencil, pen, etc, as I am dragging my mouse there is no visual representation of the line I am making. Only when I release the button on my mouse after reaching the end point of the line, the entire line appears all at once. Also, when I make a text box, at first the box does not appear. I will drag the mouse to create a text box and nothing happens, but when I type some text, suddenly the box appears. Also the box does not have the same appearance as I have seen in online tutorials, where on each corner of the box there is a square for you to drag and change the shape of the box. I am familiar with how layers work and that certain operations are restricted on certain layers. I don't believe that is the source of this problem. I have searched for solutions online and not found any report of this kind of problem elsewhere. Please help.

I remember your post from elsewhere. It is probably a unique issue with your installation.

Have you tried a different compilation of Gimp 2.10.2 The one from Partha www.partha.com was released yesterday. 64 bit only.

Also, when I make a text
box, at first the box does not appear. I will drag the mouse to create a text box and nothing happens, but when I type some text, suddenly the box appears.

The shape of the text box is a little different from earlier versions of Gimp. By request the large 'handles' are now much smaller

I wonder what the connection is?

Only thing I can think of at the moment is if you have a 4K monitor. These seem to create display problems with Gimp.
