Does anyone know why there are seven instances of Microsoft Edge WebView2 running alongside Photoshop 2022?  I hope I've solved the freezing/crashing issue but Psd is still running sluggishly and  I would still like to know about this change.

 

I'm looking at Task Manager on Windows 10 Pro, 64-bit (updated just a few days ago).

 

Thanks, Sidney

Hi @sidneydavenport 

 

Microsoft Edge Webview2 is not an Adobe product:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/webview2/

 

Try Microsoft support for Webview2

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/webview2/contact

 

or:

Yes, I'm aware. But both Photoshop and Illustrator are using it in version 2022, but not InDesign or Bridge. Check Apps in Task Manager.

How much RAM any version of Photoshop will use depends one what you do when Photoshop is up and running  Whet they need more RAM the will allocate and user in and reuse it and not return it to the system  till you shut down Photoshop or use edit Purge to have Photoshop to return some of the resource it has allocated  and is not current in need of.  All version of Photoshop I have install will use under 2GB when I first start them and nothing is open in Photoshop.  This including Photoshop 2022 version 23.0.1.  It uses the most started 1.6GB, where CS6  uses around 800MB  .8GB. I have run a large Batch job with  23.0.1 and by the end of the job  Photoshop  address space was up to 26.1GB.    I have seen CS6 use up to 30GB on my 40GB machine the max amount of I allow Photoshop to use is 90% 36GB.  I have also ended the task in Photoshop  with Tasn manager and Photoshop keeps running and working.  So I have no Idea why they  were in there.  These screen captures were done right after starting  23.0.1 you can see at the point in time  23.0.1 usage of RAM is under 2GB.  I capture part of the Task Manager window  and pasted them into a open document in the running Photoshop 23.0.1 You can see  I ended  those task and exited the 32bit Photoshop  plug-in.  Photoshop 23.0.1 keept running in under 2GB of RAM and  A I saved the caputres into a single jpeg here.
