Photoshop has been acting wonky for a few weeks. I've been in the middle of killer deadlines and could not wrap my head around how to solve Photoshops unruliness. Instead, I took lots of deep breaths and soldiered on. Now I have a slight breathing space. If I were to uninstall Photoshop and reinstall it would that help rest the way the program runs?
I would start by resetting preferences, which are not necessarily reset on a reinstall.
If that does not resolve it we might be able to help further if you describe exactly what 'wonky' means.
No, you can uninstall from the CC app - although it does no harm to restart you PC between uninstall an reinstall.
Uninstalling at this point is unnecessary. Again, reset your preferences.
Press and hold Alt+Control+Shift (Windows) or Option+Command+Shift (Mac OS) immediately after launching Photoshop. You will be prompted to delete the current settings. You can also reset preferences upon a quit if Photoshop is running by going into General Preferences>General>Reset on Quit.
(Mac OS only) Open the Preferences folder in the Library folder*, and drag the Adobe Photoshop CS Settings folder to the Trash.
This action only affects the items found in the preferences dialog box. Numerous program settings are stored in the Adobe Photoshop Preferences file, including general display options, file-saving options, performance options, cursor options, transparency options, type options, and options for plug‑ins and scratch disks. Brushes (and lots of other setting) are not affected by the above instructions for deleting preferences. You may wish to make a screen capture of the settings in the Preferences dialog to reset them prior to deleting of this file.
