Check your hotkey settings for VLC. "Display OSD menu on top of video
output" is Alt+Shift+m, unset as default, "Do not display OSD menu on
video output" is Ctrl+Alt+m, unset as default. You may have
inadvertently set and trigger those.
Under "Videos/Subtitles/OSD" try unticking "On Screen Display" and check
that "Overlays"/"On Screen Display Menu" is not ticked.

comes out.
