Photoshop: Pen Tilt Problem with Wacom (Windows)

I have a little bug with my Wacom Intuos Pro (PTH650) and photoshop CC 19.1.4

The Pen Tilt works for a while, when I use my pen and change to another window like Obs Studio, I return to photoshop and the option is disabled. 

So seeing a time I found a quick solution, if you press the windows key a few times the option is re-enabled. Anyway, if someone has another better solution I would appreciate it.

I currently have the windows ink disabled

and I use this code in my phothoshop settings:

# Use WinTab

UseSystemStylus 0

Note. This does not happen when I use Alt+Tab, only when I switch apps with the wacom pen.

Thanks in advance

Hi, I can repro this and as soon as I put my pen back on my tablet, the alert icon goes away.  I'm gonna dig some more to see if this is a wacom driver problem or a photoshop problem.  Thanks for bringing it up.

Hey hi, thanks for reply. I tried to do what you say, but the icon is still there, however if I use my eraser and return to the pen the icon disappears, and I can use the pen tilt again.
I do not know if it's a problem with Photoshop or wacom, thanks.

Tilt Work perfect but Photoshop show the alert anyway.
