Can't Maximize LoL after Alt-Tabbing?

Weird questions here, and not sure if anyone can really help with this one. So in a lot of cases, during loading screen or in game I'll alt tab to check out something else on my comp. Randomly today, my comp decided to spaz out, and so whenever I am in loading-screen or in game, and I do this, if I click on the League of Legends icon on the taskbar, nothing happens. It's like LoL froze because I minimize it. I have to end the program and reconnect to the game I was in. I guess it's not crippling, but its really really frustrating not being able to alt-tab. If I am in the lobby, I can minimize and maximize however I want. It seems to only happen in game or loading screen.

I've tried all sorts of things. Even reinstalled the game, no luck. Everything else is running just fine on my comp, this is the only thing that's out of whack. If anyone has a suggestion, love to hear it. Thanks

Play your game in Window mode.

Even the mode "Borderless" will basically be "Fullscreen" but a lot more "Alt+Tab" friendly.

I use to Alt+Tab the game in Fullscreen mode, and there was always a chance my video card would crash my computer.

Ever since I switched to Borderless, it works very well and I haven't had a problem in months.

Just be sure to NOT alt+tab when the client closes and loads the game. (After you lock in champions and the game is about to start) if you do, theres a chance the game will start in the middle of the screen, and you'll only be able to see the top corner of the game (So only Alt+Tab when you're playing - not loading in)

Other than that, Borderless works great.
