Alt tabbing
When i alt tab out of skyrim half the time when i come back to it its just a black screen with a blue boarder, and i have to Alt F4 the program or right click and close it in my task bar. Or if i do get back into game my original windows mouse cursor is there and does not sync up with the skyrim Cursor

Skyrim is not intended for "Alt tabbing". You should use windowed mode.

i can alt tab 2 times more when i get the bacl thingy and it goes to skyrim.

But often my mouse is messed up and i have to restart anyways.

What I do is press escape before alt tabbing, then when going back, alt tab twice.
If your mouse cursor still shows do it again but click then blue border around the black screen before tabbing again.

Same issue here, you have to go to a menu before tabbing.

It's like this for me aswell.
I just click on skyrim on the toolbar and then alt tab into the game.

OK there two things happening here, but first point forget about using window mode crap!!
First reason
If game collaspes back to window icon alt tab may work' I found ctrl alt del is better ,first click on icon to bring black screen up and then use the 3 keys to bring window task manager up just cancel it and game will back when it happen this may occur twice,
Reason is background program mainly Anti Virus doing its stuff its popup window is the cause usually one for scan completed and one for report on scan.
Second reason
You can do the method to remove double mouse cursor issue, just move windows mouse off screen use the 3 keys and cancel out of task manager may need to be a couple of time but usually once.
There is a fix for this under BUG FIX in nexus
