Unable to Alt+Tab to IDE if Library Manager, Board Manager or Preferences open

I am using Arduino 1.8.13 on Windows 10 but this problem has existed for as long as I can recall.

When I open a window within the Arduino IDE such as the Library Manager, Board Manager or Preferences windows and go to another open program (e.g. Firefox), I am unable to use Alt + Tab to bring the Arduino IDE windows to the front again; I have to use the mouse cursor to select the desired window from the taskbar. Does anyone else experience this? I use Alt + Tab a lot, and figure most competent users do also make good use of this shortcut.

Does anyone else experience this?

Not a problem here. Alt/Tab working as expected

Windows 10
IDE 1.8.13

No problem here either; Win10 + IDE 1.8.5
