PS 2020 has been unusable for me since release, first the issue with the tool presets resetting at startup, and the UI flickering never got resolved and doesn't look there's a mention for it so here's how to reproduce: 
(I'm on windows 10, latest PS version.)  


1. go to photoshop preferences and in workspace section set "open documents as tabs" and "enable floating documents window docking" to disabled


2. create new document. 


3. press alt+tab once


4, now on your document: whatever action you do wether its a brushstroke or color picking the UI will start flickering, for an easy test simply press alt and keep pressing the left mouse on the canvas repeatedly to see. all the UI elements will keep flashing, this is even more annoying when in full screen mode. 


if you look at the taskbar it appears as though the focus of the active window constantly jumps back and forth between photoshop and the open document instead of staying on PS.


hope you can manage to reproduce and fix this as someone who color picks all the time its just unworkable. let me know if you need any more info.
