Strange Display Behavior

This won't be straight forward to explain; I searched the forums and saw many posts regarding display issues but none similar to this problem. Recently working with a large assembly that crashed and required a SW re-start. Since then, I've had trouble getting the assemblies and sub-assemblies to display when loading. When selecting an assembly to load, I initially get a brief glimpse of the assembly before the screen jumps to a gray, blank display that covers the entire SW workspace. If I right click in the workspace, and select the "View" button, the assembly then displays appropriately. However, if I open a new assembly, I again get the brief glimpse of the assembly, the gray-ed out display, right click and click "view", and the assembly displays as appropriate. This behavior doesn't permanently occur when opening parts.

 

Now I have the added step of right clicking and clicking "view" when jumping between assemblies, opening new assemblies, moving to simulation. That, a I lost many of my menu preferences.

 

Anyone else experience this?
