Until yesterday, Photoshop has been working fine. Today, it appears not to start, but it is actually starting as a background process and I can't access any of it. I've read the forums and tried:
-updating graphics card drivers
-disabling graphics cards
-uninstalling and reinstalling photoshop
-uninstalling and reinstalling all Adobe apps (except creative cloud)
-did a "repair" installation of Adobe Creative Cloud
-moved the settings folder and let photoshop create a new one
None of these worked. I'm running Windows 10 on an Alienware laptop with a Nvidia graphics card. Like I said, everything worked fine until this morning. All drivers up to date. Windows up to date. Running Photoshop 22.2
If it makes a difference, Illustrator and Acrobat work fine.
Please help! I couldn't get any work done today at all.
It's a very common glitch with Photoshop on Windows that I've seen happening for many years.
What seems to have always worked for me is to:
This has always worked for me.
That doesn't work for me. It just goes right to the background. I wish it had been that easy for me!
I know this isn't an ideal solution but since it's been working in the past, have you tried downgrading Photoshop to previous version?
I hadn't tried that yet but just did. It works! Thank you! I'll wait for another update and try the new version again. But at least this way I can keep working!
Glad you got it working! 😉
Here's the question that never gets asked: If it's a known bug and has been happening for many years, why doesn't Adobe just fix it?
