hashcat writes into a session.restore file every time a restorepoint is reached, depending on your attack you can kill the process or try this

cntrl + shift + esc and then when it opens go into the process (little triangle bottom right) and right click “task manager”, you can set it to always be in front, this brings it forward where you can access it (didnt know whether this also works on w10, w11) but give it a try
