Anki non responsive to spacebar and window is not focused

Sometimes when using the space bar to “show answer” on a card, the card will freeze almost like I clicked on a different tab and the only way to fix it is to click on the card again

Can you take a video of this occurring? Is this on every card?

If you quit Anki then open it again, does this still happen?

Also what version of Anki are you on?

Can’t attach video I do not know how to format it to get it to upload here.
This started happening when I downloaded the 12+ version to get the FSRS schedular. Tried changing my video driver, restarting, deleting and redownloading. I do not know if this is an add on issue or a general function issue. If you look at the screenshots watch what happens in the first picture, the top bar loses the color on the window size options like I clicked on a different window. I am hitting my space bar at that moment but it does not respond until I click on the Anki window with my mouse as seen in the 2nd screen shot.

Does this happen when you are in full screen as well? (click on the green button on top left of the window)

Still happening on full screen. I am plugging in my MacBook to an utlrawide and using Logitech keyboard. However was not an issue till I got new version of Anki

Sorry I cannot convert the video, I hope you understand the issue without it. It is not the most urgent issue but very annoying for workflow considering I use my number pad for doing cards. To specify its my whole keyboard is unresponsive when this happens, not just my spacebar.

Changing the video driver from the preferences should help.
