Short description of error
I created a new window with "Window" -> "New Window". Then I switched to a different workspace tab on the main window, which made the top bar with all its workspace tabs dissappear. after resizing the window the top bar is visible can be used again. After closing the new window, Blender behaves normally again.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Started Blender with new file
  • Open new window
  • Move new window to display with 125% scaling
  • Switch to next workspace
  • Switch to next workspace again

I Tested it again and it seems that this only happens if the new window is placed on my second monitor, which uses a 125% Display scaling. If i set the scaling to 100% and try it again, the bug is not present anymore.

Could indeed be related to display scaling, because I cannot reproduce it currently. Can you make a short screen recording that shows the issue?
