Lightroom & Photoshop issues

I recently had to rebuild my PC so now I run an AMD Threadripper 1950x with lots of RAM. I’m running Windows 10 and I have the Photography package i.e. Lightroom & Photoshop. However, I have ran into some problems when I use “edit in Photoshop command” in Lightroom, Photoshop opens up as normal but if I try to do duplicate background or delete layer all the controls are greyed out, same with any of the selection menu. When I load Photoshop and then open the same files all the above controls work as expected. I have tried reinstalling without any change do I have some setting wrong or is there something else going on here.

I have seen other threads about this here. It seems to be a known problem. Workaround is apparently to launch Photoshop first so that it is already running when you issue the edit in Photoshop command.
