I have an issue with turning on the soft proofing mode.
When I try to switch it on and either click on the checkbox or "Soft Proofing" text next to the checkbox, it seems to change nothing. However, it changes something in a weird way:
1) It freezes the actual image as it was before switching the Soft Proofing mode on. If I hide side or bottom tabs it repositions the image but does not resize it. (See attached bug.png)
2) Right mouse click allows to select different Proof Matte Color and then the "Create proof copy" menu appears but the background remains unchanged. (See attached bug2.png)
3) However, if I hide or open the side (bottom) tab it changes the background color. (See attached bug3.png)
4) When I try to change some settings, it asks if I want to create a virtual copy. When I create a virtual copy and try to apply changes, it asks again whether I want to create a virtual copy. I create up to 5 virtual copies, all identical. No changes appear on these virtual copies. However, if with virtual copy selected on the bottom panel I trying to apply changes and click "Make this a proof" it applies changes to the original image which is visible on the thumbnail preview at the bottom panel, but not on the main panel.
5) If I switch off the Soft Proofing, everything starts to work as usual.
Few more weird things:
1) When I check the checkbox the text "Soft Proofing" remains inactive.
2) When I click on the text "Soft Proofing" it becomes active but the checkbox remains unchecked.
3) If I activate both sequentially they can be inactivated together by clicking on either of them.
4) Hotkey (S) works only to switch mode off but does not switch it on.
I tried to restart the app, restart the PC, re-install the app. No effect.

Use the Creative Coud application to do an Uninstall of LrC (click on the three dots). Restart your system and reintall LrC 10.1.1 using the Creative Cloud app.
Thank you for your comment.
Unfortunately, the restart of the system before reinstallation did not add anything. The soft proofing mode is still bugging.
P.S. Sorry for the late reply, I was away from my computer.
Next, Do a Preferences Reset. This often fixes weird stuff.
(A re-install does not reset the Preferences!)
(You can backup the Preference file before re-setting, just in case you want to restore it)
Thank you for the suggestion. Unfortunately, it doesn't solve the problem.
In LrC Edit> Preferences> Performance set 'Use Graphics Processor' to Off. Then close and reopen LrC.
What ICC profile is being selected when you go into Soft Proof mode?
