Since updating to Photoshop 23.0, I'm only maybe 20% successful in launching Photoshop (on Windows 11). It more often than not gets to a "Not Responding" state after splash screen, but before becoming fully usable. Sometimes there will even be multiple processes listed in Activity Monitor
Some of those things, like removing prefs or alt-ctrl-shift-launch, might let it launch once, but not reliably. I'm just at a loss as to what else to try to reliably launch Photoshop 23.0 on my Windows 11 computer.
Have you completely restarted your computer after the update?
Even after a fresh restart, Photoshop 23.0 won't always start. Sometimes it does, most times it doesn't.
After spending probably an hour or so in a chat with customer support where he even took control of my computer and checked a few things, we pretty much chalked it up to a bug between the new Photoshop release and Windows 11, and he was escalating it up to senior management. I have basically just learned to try to leave Photoshop running as long as I possibly can once I get it started (which might take a few tries). Patiently awaiting a Photoshop dot release to see if it helps clear things up.
I am having the exact same problem. What do I do?
I am having the same issues but I am still on windows 10
I have a similar problem. after updating to Win 11 Photoshop 23 stops working after a while.. the screen blinks once and then it freezes. I tried downgrading to various versions of Photoshop 22 but it keeps happening.
