I’ve encountered the same problem; mostly at work, but also once or twice at home. I’ve never been able to pinpoint what caused it (nor have I tried really hard either; it’s usually easier to just open a new instance and get on with my day). I’ve had a nagging suspicion it could be related to my multimonitor setup, since Windows itself occasionally gets confused, and moves windows from one monitor to another after (un)locking the desktop — it sometimes leaves the window where it was, but moves the corresponding taskbar button to another monitor.

I’ve added /Y to my existing startup params too (/ZB /TOZV /APIT /ZM).

I've got my config set to MAX-1 and MAX-2 at work, and still got the problem Zdneek mentions. Though my three monitors each have different DPI settings; and that’s also something several apps have trouble with (including Windows itself, e.g. the start menu will sometimes appear with enormously large letters on my low-DPI screen, or minuscule letters on my 4K monitor). So it could still be related to sizing.

/APIT shouldn’t have any effect on Alt-F7, should it?

There’s no visual corruption, since the window actually disappears. All I see is a ZTW64.exe process that’s running at 100% on a single core, but has no (visible) window associated with it.

So do I.

For now, I’ll wait to see if the /Y trick works (or Microsoft fixes something in the console host).
