Hello Guys,

Needing some suggestions here. I recently (today) noticed that whenever I'm trying to alt tab out of the game the screen will stay black for about 3 secs (usually its immediate). I've updated the gpu driver and also got windows updated but still no change.

Any thoughts on this?

Thanks in advance!

Try a clean boot and see if it changes anything - make sure to read instructions and make sure NOT to disable any microsoft services or windows won't load right - https://support.microsoft.com/en-au/help/929135/how-to-perform-a-clean-boot-in-windows

if clean boot fixes it, it shows its likely a startup program. You should, over a number of startups. restart the programs you stopped to isolate the one that is to blame.
I think somehow after a windows update my refresh rate was changed to 59hz, but once I changed back to 60hz , it solved the issue atm. But I'll definitely keep your suggestion in mind, thanks a lot!
 
If the game is played in fullscreen mode and the game display settings are different than the desktop display settings, then it needs to change the settings whenever you alt-tab in or out, which takes a few seconds.
