    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    Could you please provide some screenshots about the problem? You can upload it to https://onedrive.live.com/ and share the link here.

    Please navigate to  <Visual Studio Installation Path>\Common7\IDE and run the following commands:

    devenv.exe /resetsettings, it will restore Visual Studio default settings. Optionally resets the settings to the specified .vssettings file.

    Before this, you can export the current setting files(Tools->import and export settings).

    Besides, please open an administrative CMD window and navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE and run these commands:

     devenv /safemode

    It prevents all third-party VSPackages from loading when Visual Studio starts, thus ensuring stable execution. if it works, this issue should be caused by the extensions and you need to remove the installed extensions under Tools—Extensions and Updates.

    Best regards,
