I’m glad to see its acknowledged, I came here today to post this issue. However I tried the fixes and there is no change on my computer.
I run two accounts usually preferably in fixed window. I’ve taken a long break but upon coming back I’m noticing an alt tabbing problem which I’ve never had before for years. The lag can totally lock the system up for 5 seconds or so, or it can just stutter and continue along. It also blocks inputs entirely and loses them … sometimes.
Another strange symptom is it varies from alt-tab to alt-tab and isn’t consistent at all. And it seems like everything I do that could affect video performance seems to affect this issue, but never resolve it. For example if I switch to Fullscreen then the problem seems to go away completely for a little while (hours or minutes, there is no telling). Then it comes back in full force until I switch back to Fixed Window. Out of the game I can shut down Geforce Experience since I have shadowplay on and there is an overlay associated with that and the problem seems to go away. For a minute then it comes back. I haven’t messed with Window mode a lot cause I dont want to use it even if it was a workaround because of what it does to all the dialog boxes.
After following the workarounds that I could in that link I cleared all my cache and rebooted. Then I uninstalled and reinstalled. It actually seems worse now but that is probably a coincidence.
It only seems to happen when two clients or more are running. One works great in any mode I’ve tried.
- Windows 10 Pro 64bit all updates
- EVGA 1080ti, no overclocking right now to test this issue though I do have Afterburner up which does hook in an overlay I suppose
- 16 GB DDR4
- i5-6600k @ 4.7 ghz
- Install is on a NVME drive
- Nvidia 385.28 Drivers
The system is pretty vanilla, I dont like a lot of background processes. I do have Teamviewer autorun but I’ll shut it down and there is no difference.
I was interested in the Intel iGPU workaround but I actually have mine disabled completely in the BIOS and it doesn’t register as a device in Windows at all.
I’d like to resolve this because its so bad on occasion its game breaking
