Photoshop 8 bit vs 16 bit mode

I discovered that if I make a copy of a layer.. the copied layer appears as all white! .. but.. if I change the mode to 16 bit instead of the default 8 bit.. the copied layer appears the same as the original layer. I'm using the latest subscription version, 23.3.0, strange thing is.. I have the same version loaded on my desktop and my laptop and the copied layer on the laptop works as it should in the default 8 bit mode.. the desktop is the one that only copies a layer correctly in 16 bit mode. This is something that happened just recently and I've been using the latest Photoshop for over 20 years. I'm hoping someone might know why this is happening??

Thanks, Bill Stewart
