i am on a corporate laptop, adminstered by IT department, if that is the right terminology. I personally had to run Matlab as an administrator to get the Simulink window to populate. I had to apply for the rights to use Windows admin account as developer rights.

I had the same issue. The problem is that the Simulink window (also others like add-on explorer) tend to work only at a particular aspect ratio (don't know why). After your Simulink window opens, increase or decrease the width of the window. When you start seeing something, adjust the width so that it perfectly fits the contents of the window. Later you can diagonally increase the size of the window.
This worked for me.

I Have this same issue and this temporary solution solved the problem. Unfortunelly it happened in other programs too. So its not a particuliarity of the MATLAB. please, someone, help!

Seeing the above image, it seems like your Simulink needs a rebuild or the toolbar itself isn’t loaded.
Follow these steps:
  1. >> rehash toolboxcache (to refresh file system caches)
  2. >> sl_refresh_customizations (to rebuild Simulink , Library menus and toolbar)
  3. Close all instances of MATLAB and restart.

Faced the same issue for 2021a and 2020b.
Added this phrase to shortcut target "-softwareopengl" and it worked for me.
