Alt+Tab Freezes Display

I recently purchased a PC (Radeon RX 6600XT & Ryzen 5 5600G) and overall things are fine. However, if I am playing a game and listening to a video or audio and alt+tab out of the game (in borderless windowed mode) to adjust the video - the entire display just freezes. The game and audio of the browser continue to play and I can interact with the browser (i.e. when I scroll, then the display unfreezes I am then at the bottom of the page despite not seeing anything as I interact). My previous PC had weaker specs and could do this with no problem so I'm not entirely sure what's going on - but I was hoping someone would at least have some troubleshooting for me to attempt to hopefully combat this.

Facing a simillar issue with a multiple display setup.
I'm having random freezes on the main laptop display, but any audio from the app is transmitting fine.
I can even move the window from the frozen display to the secondary one (win key + arrows) and it's responding fine.
