This should work - from the release notes for V18.32
in the HISTORY.DOC file.

SD in Windows 10.
    Here are the recommended "Properties" settings
    for SD in Windows 10. These settings minimise or
    eliminate display errors when moving or re-sizing
    SD's window.

    While it is possible to access "Properties" when
    SD is running, the recommended option is to do
    this from SD's desktop startup icon - right-click
    on the icon and select Properties (the last item
    on the list).

    The only tabs of interest are Options, Layout
    and Font - in that sequence.

    You need to do this once only - for both SD and

    OPTIONS Tab:
       IMPORTANT! Follow this sequence -

       Use legacy console - Yes (selected)

       Cursor Size     - May be ignored

       Command History - May be ignored

       Edit options
         Quick Edit    - No (unselected)
         Insert Mode   - NO (unselected)

       Text Selection  - all unselected

    LAYOUT Tab:
       Screen Buffer Size
         Width  - 82
         Height - 27

       Window Size
         Width  - 82
         Height - 27

       Window Position
         Let system position window - No (unselected)
         Left  - 0
         Right - 0

     FONT Tab
         DO NOT select Raster Fonts!
         For a "widescreen" laptop or monitor, select Lucida Console
         For a non-widescreen monitor, select Consolas

       Bold fonts
         Select if preferred

         Select the largest font size that fits SD's window
         to your screen, or smaller if preferred.
