I can not use overlay tools from "tools" menu as everything is greyed out except auto show & never show.

The "o" key does not work to show different overlays.  Is this a bug in LRC 10 or am I missing something?

thanks in advance

The first thing that you should try is to switch off the GPU support from the Lightroom preferences and check if that helps to fix the issue.

Go to Lightroom > Preferences > Performance tab > Uncheck "Use Graphics Processor" > Restart Lightroom.

If Lightroom doesn't start correctly the please see "Solution 2" in the document behind the second link.

 

Another step is to try to reset the Lightroom preferences.

I assume you are trying to look at the overlay for an adjustment brush.

Is the pin for the particular adjustment selected?
