[NEEDS SAVES] Right-clicking to follow Sim doesn't work (drops)

[ Edited ]
★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.68.154.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Go into windowed or window borderless and right click sim to try to get camera to follow sim
What happens when the bug occurs? The camera doesn't follow the sim after right clicking SIM icon bottom left whilst in windowed or windowed borderless mode, but works as expected in full screen
What do you expect to see? Camera to follow sim as it does in full screen
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

No mods, have repaired game, specs are met, never tried windowed mode until now so idk how long it's happened. Rarely the camera does stick to the sim but it is still quick to stop if you move the cursor over any UI

@MissPlumbob123 I can duplicate this but for me it works in windowed but and full but not windowed full.

As your OP is a bit confusing which mods work for you as the second post says something different than the first, could you edit that and make it clearer what works for me.

My result:

1. Windowed - Works fine
2. Windowed Fullscreen - Doesn't Work
3. Fullscreen - Works fine

Sorry for the confusion, yes that is correct i have the same, i use no mods. At first i thought it was windowed and windowed fullscreen that didnt work but now i realise only windowed fullscreen doesnt work, as i tested it properly now. Thanks!
