Sometimes in the middle of painting in photoshop, my current instrument ( whatever it is at that moment) becomes a windows pointer, and after that photoshop just freeze and any manipulation in the programs appears to be unactive. And it's fixed only if I close the program and then reopens it. By the way, I am using Windows 10. Please help me solve this because it's really slowing my working process.
