Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio: where's my focus?

At work I use Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio extensively. I recently upgraded to a new computer, and now (on Windows 10), when I switch from somewhere back to Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio, the keyboard focus is not in the query editor window where it was before. This is inconvenient as I was used to combine Alt+Tab and Ctrl+V to copy over data or SQL generated elsewhere.

I'm also not sure where keyboard input is exactly going to. A press of F6 moves keyboard focus to the results pane, but arrows or anything else doesn't appear to have effect. Could it be a side panel? I typically only have Object Explorer and Registered Servers open, the same as I had them on Windows 7.
