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.
