Showing Arc Control by ALT+I may reset the app to defaults.

When I show "Arc Control" by "ALT+I" or from the system tray icon in another window mode different from the last time shown, the app is reset to defaults.

Steps to reproduce:
0. Ensure that "Window Mode" is set to "Desktop and Overlay".
1. Show "Arc Control" in "desktop mode".
2. Add games manually in "Game library".
3. Close "Arc Control" by the close button.
4. Show "Arc Control" by "ALT+I".
5. Added games will not be shown in "Game library".

I have experienced this issue on version 1.68.4938.6 and 1.69.5033.3.

The issue started after I installed Graphics Driver 31.0.101.4369. I made no hardware change before and after the issue started. I uninstalled old drivers with DDU, installed OEM drivers downloaded from MSI(30.0.100.9805) and Asrock(31.0.101.3430), then installed the latest driver at that time downloaded from Intel(31.0.101.4369). I took 2 videos of notifications settings being reset by "ALT+I" hotkey and "Open Arc Control" system tray menu respectively.

I took these logs as follows. I started "Intel Arc Control" with "Desktop" window mode, modified notification settings and once closed the app, then showed the app by "ALT+I" and made sure that notification settings had been reset. At last I exited the app.
