Question alt-tabbing black screen for a few seconds

I just got a 240hz monitor. A Viewsonic XG270. I have an issue where when I alt-tab in Destiny 2 my screen will go black for a few seconds then the game will show back up. The only way to successfully alt-tab from in game is to hold down alt, and eventually after a few seconds my other windows/desktop will appear. I've seen other posts with similar black screen issues around the internet, and people saying to play in windowed full screen as this seems to be an issue with full screen games. On my other monitor, the one I was using before, I am able to alt-tab with no problem, even in full screen. This seems to not be isolated to just Destiny as I have this issue in other games as well.

Odd, I've never NOT had this issue with Full screen games. Windowed or borderless windowed work fine.

Yeah, def seems to be an issue with fullscreen. It's just weird that my other monitor, as well as my console monitor, don't have this issue, even in fullscreen. I just get way less frames when playing in windowed-fullscreen, so sadly not an option.
