I think this is the right area to post this.

Just this past week my computer has been having an issue that I have never come across before, my games work fine after restart, then once I close a game and open another (or the same game) the FPS drops to 15 when in full screen.

I have only tested this in a handful of games, GTA V, Red Dead Redemption 2, My Friend Pedro, Dead by daylight and some others.
Red dead runs fine without any problems, even if every other game is running awfully (maybe because it is running vulkan not direct X?)
I have a decent pc, so this isnt an issue of simply needing to upgrade

When I tab out of the game I can still see the fps counter and how smooth the game is if the program I am tabbing to is my second monitor.

This started happening so I updated my GPU drivers but nothing changed.

SPECS:
CPU: Ryzen 7 1700x 3.5ghz
GPU: RX 580 8gb
RAM: 8gb ddr4 3000mhz
MOBO: ASRock AB350 Gaming K4
