So far I haven't had any problems, but Photoshop just doesn't start for a few days.
It will show up in Task Manager, but nothing else will happen.
I recently installed an older version, started it in compatibility mode and as admin. That worked for a day. The next day this did not work either.
- Windows 10 64-bit
- AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12-Core Processor 3.79 GHz

Have you tried resetting your Photoshop preferences
If that doesn't help try using the Adobe cleaner tool
Photoshop still doesn't start, so i cant get access to the preferences.
I tried the CC-Cleaner-Tool, but no effect.
So i tried the following things already:
- CC Cleaner Tool
- Re-install Photoshop a few times
- tried to install different "older" versions
- deleted all temp files (appdata)
Any other suggestions?
I'm really confused, cause it worked for month on this computer.
i kinda wanna avoid to deinstall the whole cc-suite.
"Photoshop still doesn't start, so i cant get access to the preferences"
The preferences file can be found in this location, just delete the Adobe Photoshop 2021 Prefs file
C:\Users\your name\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2021\Adobe Photoshop 2021 Settings
This folder is already empty 😞
I dont know why and how...but after i almost bought Affinity Designer (cause work has to be done!) i just tried to open Photoshop again.
And now it works!
Let's see how long..
And again... without any reason (no system-changes, no updates of any other software, no new software/plugins, etc. ... ), photoshop doesnt wants to start....
I still need help.
My current status is, that i need to reinstall photoshop to make it start ONE time. After an restart it doesnt start at all.
