R version 3.6.3 was released back in February of 2020, so well over a 
year old, and version 4.1.0 is the current version.

I don't use Windows, and it is not clear if there was a Windows specific 
bug present at that time that may have been resolved since then. There 
have been a fair number of changes to the graphics engine and perhaps 
other related functionality.

Unless you are constrained by local IT policies, I would urge you to 
upgrade your R installation to the current release version, preferably 
with a fully clean install, given the major version upgrade such as this 
would be.
