Illustrator freezes while returning from another window.
Happens only when there are unlinked files in Illustrator document. It takes about 20 seconds to resume work. I guess it is updating unlinked stuff but not finding anything. It is terrible.

It has been so for years now. Every windows computer. Every Illustrator CC version.
Can I turn off automatic link check thing?
I it just one of the myriad of unfixed annoyances that Illustrator seems to gather through the years.

Solution:
Preferences -> File handling and clipboard -> Update links (changed this from "ask when modified" to "manual")

Well this last solution seems to work only when links window is closed 😞 It still seems to check all the missing links for some reason. Can I disable it somehow?
