I am not sure if this is the right forum to ask this kind of question. If not, I would greatly appreciate if someone could point me to the right direction.
I am encountering a technical issue with Microsoft Edge Chromium. Since last Monday I am getting strange renderings, see screenshot below. I am using the Edge version distributed with the last big windows update on a Win10 Dell XPS15 setup. I am not using any insider version (Canary, etc.). The only thing I changed is installing latest Windows updates and the newest NVIDIA driver on Sunday.
I could not find any related issues on the web so far.

@HotCakeX Exactly, settings are affected as well. I also did a reinstall.
Interestingly, when trying to uninstall Edge via "App/Features > Edge > Uninstall" a second window is shown in the task bar, which I cannot see though. However, if I then open a new Edge window the rendering works as normal. See screenshot below:
So this made me try to open two Edge windows at the same time, hoping the rederning problem will only affect one window. Unfortunatley, this did not work. The rendering problem was presented in both windows.

Delete the folder GPUCache and file Local State File in the Edge folder.
If it doesn't work, try to launch Edge with argument --disable-gpu
To be precise, GPU Cache locates here:

Disabling Hardware acceleration is not a solution though, when I suggested that I wanted to see if graphic card is the culprit or not.
Microsoft should still Fix this issue, I've seen other people having the same problem as well.
maybe it's from Nvidia's side or maybe it's from Microsoft's side.
Also disabling hardware acceleration degrades performances a lot. specially on Nvidia cards that are more compatible than AMD cards and can boost programs performance, on browser when watching videos on YouTube etc and web page loading and performance overall
