Weird behavior of adjustment brush, radial filer and graduated filter

In recent days Lightroom Classic 10.1.1 is behaving very strangely : when I apply a brush stroke with the adjustment brush, I always get a soft white stroke, even if all the brush sliders are zero! Changing any of the brush settings has no effect. See screenshots. When I apply a circular or graduated filter, again with all sliders set to zero, the same thing happens, it applies a whitish filter, almost like an overlay. Moving any of the sliders has no effect.
I uninstalled and reinstalled LR Classic 10.1.1, to no avail.
Is my PC at fault? Is there a glitch in LR 10.1.1.?

It's "almost like an overlay" because it IS an overlay. You have the option to "Show Selected Mask Overlay" checked (with the white overlay colour selected), so any brush stroke will show the overlay in the brushed area. You can change the colour of the overlay by toggling through the Shift+O shortcut, and you can hide the overlay by unchecking that box.

Dear Jim, this solved it! Thank you so much. Toggling with "O" made the thing go away or reappear! Had not thought of this... Thanks!
