After opening PS and clicking the open button, PS quits working. The only thing I can do is open the task manager and end the task and try again. This only happens occasionally, but it is a pain. I've also tried to use the file>open option but it does the same thing. Using Windows 11 on a Dell Inspirion, and everything is up to date.
When Photoshop crashes, this is the first thing to do, try resetting your Photoshop 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.
**Note: The user Library folder is hidden by default on macOS. In the Finder, hold down the Option key when using the Go menu. Library will appear below the current user's home directory. Now you can drag the entire Adobe Photoshop [Version] Settings folder to the desktop or somewhere safe for a back-up of your settings
