I was in dark mode when I installed AC23 and the dark bars happened. Turning dark mode off and rebooting cleared it back to normal.

I guess it is a bug as AC should be independent of the screen mode. On an optimistic note, maybe GS are making the first steps towards dark mode compatibility...

My guess would be to check your graphics drivers...

Black menu bars are back,
after restarting with dark mode left on.
(I'm NOT going turn dark mode off every time I shut down).

Reported the Bug to GSNA.
