I have Photoshop 2021 22.2.0 on a Windows 10 machine.  Every time I try to duplicate a layer, Photoshop freezes and the only way to get out of it is to use ctrl/alt/delete.  How can I fix this so that I can get back to editing.

Thanks 

Wayne

Thank you Mohammad for the advice. Resetting my preferences worked. Learn
something new everyday. Can't any better than that.
