Same thing for me : spinning wheel, even after uninstalling and reinstalling. Only Photoshop is concerned in the Creative Suite.

Add me to the list - have spent a week on with support (chat) with zero fixes just asking the same questions like it will magically fix itself!.. M1 Mac Mini using Big Sur latest version. Ps 22.4.x does this no matter what I've done. So I am running on 22.3.x which pisses me off..

Try logging into another account (you may need to make one): does it still crash/hang?

If you boot into Safe mode (hold down Shift Key at boot): does it still crash?

Have you tried running a free utility like Onyx to see if that stops the crashing?
