Ya, don't alt+tab out of the game.

Oblivion had the exact same problem, i'd have to recommend just refraining from alt+tabbing

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.

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.
