Freezing when tabbing out of VALORANT on Windows 11 can be frustrating. Here are a few steps to potentially fix this issue: 1. Graphics Drivers: Ensure your GPU drivers are fully updated. Check NVIDIA or AMD websites for the latest drivers. 2. Full Screen Optimization: Disable full-screen optimizations: - Right-click on VALORANT.exe > Properties > Compatibility tab > Check 'Disable fullscreen optimizations'. 3. Game Mode: Turn off 'Game Mode' in Windows settings. - Go to Settings > Gaming > Game Mode > Toggle off. 4. Background Apps: Close unnecessary background applications that might interfere with the game. 5. Riot Client: Run both VALORANT and Riot Client as administrator. - Right-click the executable > Properties > Compatibility tab > Check 'Run this program as an administrator'. 6. Windows Updates: Ensure your Windows OS is up to date. 7. In-Game Settings: Lower in-game graphics settings, especially if running resource-intensive applications simultaneously. If these steps don't resolve the issue, consider submitting a ticket to Riot Games support for further assistance.
