Anyone else notice the game basically locks up if you alt tab? Anyone know a workaround for this?

Yes. Dont alt-tab.

Don't Alt-Tab.

If there a windowed mode option? Most games that lock up, won't, if it's on windowed.

It locks up the first time I Alt-Tab back into the game. Doing it a second time will allow you to go back ingame, try it.

Try opening the esc menu before tabbing out, that used to work for me in Oblivion...

Oblivion would always do this to me, too. Even with a high-end PC. Just one of those things.

But seriously, just keep a tablet or a netbook nearby, if you need to do something outside of the game. Because in Bethesda games, alt-tabbing is pretty much taking a sledgehammer to your stability. Sure, you might come out fine, but more often than not you're just asking for a CTD.

Opening the console always allowed me to alt tab out without issue on FO3, Oblivion and NV, can't see why it wouldn't work here as well.

you just have to alt tab back into skyrim instead of just clicking it in your taskbar. Thats the way it works for me anyway.
