Hey guys,

This video outlines exactly what my issue is but unfortunately, his solution does not fix the problem for me. I have updated, uninstalled and reinstalled.

Any other ideas or hotfix would be appreciated as photoshop is useless to me at the moment.

Howdy Liam,

If the Command Menu is flickering, then it's most likely that Photoshop is receiving input from another source as well.  This could be a bad driver from a tablet or keyboard or even another application.

What OS are you running?  And which version of Photoshop?  Could you try disabling any Wacom tablet or other pointing device, so we can rule those out?  Ditto for mice and third-party apps, particularly screen-capture and video-editors.
