sensitivity issue when i alt-tab

For a while, I don't remember how long or what I might have done to cause this, my tf2 alt-tabs:

  • surprisingly fast; i run the game at fullscreen, or think i am (i have -fullscreen and my res in my launch options and the game says i'm running full screen in video settings) but my alt-tabs are uncharacteristically near instant unlike how they used to be
  • jacks up my sensitivity way higher than it feels most of the time when i play now, but then slowly and smoothly slows down to something that feels way slower than it used to, before i had this problem

Basically, the sensitivity I set is for some reason much slower than it's supposed to be (from what I can tell), but it feels regular when I alt-tab back in and then it gets worse, and I'm not sure why; this also happens in other source games like CSGO for some reason and even Quake Live (which uses the same sensitivity as source) which almost makes me think this is all placebo but I don't know how I'd just completely forget what my sensitivity feels like, and it doesn't explain how it starts higher than usual when I alt-tab in and then mellow out; games like Reflex and Overwatch feel how I remember

Setup notes and what I've tried:

  • I've tried it with multiple mice with multiple DPIs (but both were Logitechs; with and without the '''gaming software''' installed); increasing DPI and the sensitivity value does effect sensitivity but it's not much of a hotfix
  • I only have one monitor
  • I'm using mastercoms comp (would have gone through the thread but it's 40 pages deep; looked through the vpk and haven't found anything that sounds like the problem I'm facing) but from what I can tell I have the same problem if I run -default in launch options
  • Raw input is on, mouse filter and acceleration are off
  • I'm using the MarkC Windows mouse fix

Anyone know what I can do or troubleshoot? Here are my launch options
-novid -nojoy -nosteamcontroller -noff -softparticlesdefaultoff -reuse -w 1920 -h 1080 -fullscreen -noforcemaccel -noforcemspd
