Blog Owners Reporting The New Blogger GUI Display Is Garbled

We have recently seen a few reports in Blogger Help Forum: Something Is Broken, concerning the New GUI display, which is broken for some blog owners.
When I login to Blogger, the interface doesn't display properly. Everything is shifted and some buttons appear to be missing.
The reporting volume, mentioning this symptom, is low - but it's not random, or zero.

From what we can tell, this problem started shortly after the latest Microsoft Windows updates, a week ago. Microsoft Answers: Computer Display Messed up After Restart discusses this problem, and essentially suggests that you should download video drivers from the vendor of the video device in your computer - and to not depend upon Microsoft, to provide you updated third party drivers.

If you are unable to use the Blogger Interface because the display is unreadable, with components missing or mislocated, you're going to have to update the video drivers on your computer, using drivers obtained from the manufacturer - not from Microsoft. This is not a problem caused by Blogger.

If the browser involved in the problem is Internet Explorer, you also may need to check your Compatibility View setting.

What's The URL Of My Blog?

We see the plea for help, periodically I need the URL of my blog, so I can give it to my friends. Help! Who's buried in Grant's Tomb, after all? No Chuck, be polite. OK, OK. The title of this blog is "The Real Blogger Status", and the title of this post is "What's The URL Of My Blog?".

Where's The Dashboard?

We see this confusion, a couple times a week, in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I? . Where is the dashboard? In the Classic Blogger GUI, the display which contained the "Blog List" (at the top), and the "Reading List" (at the bottom) was labeled "Dashboard". Many people also called the "Settings" / "Template" screens for the various blogs, linked from the Blog List, the dashboard. The New Blogger GUI has no page with the label - and no links "To The Dashboard". The Navbar (another unlabeled feature) has two links - "Design" and "New Post" - which lead to different dashboard sections, when you are appropriately logged in to Blogger . And, the "B" logo at the far left of the navbar will, similarly, take you to the Blog List / Reading List.
