Bethesda's games don't like alt+tab. Those readme files that come with the game? They tell you stuff like this.
To get around this, I used the Steam web browser when I need to look at the wiki.
ok thanks guys for the help
I found a solution (at least it works 100% for me) I want to share it for those who still play this now an again:
- go to fallout.ini (in documents / my games) - change the following lines:
iLocation Y=5 iLocation X=5
iLocation Y=1 iLocation X=1
I tried it because the screen position seemed off after tabbing out and it's been fine since.
