Freezing randomly. Need to alt tab to unfreeze.

Photoshop may work fine for hours, but then suddenly it will start to randomly freeze. This usually happens when I try to undo a brush stroke. Once it is frozen, I can't do anything and the only way to unfreeze it is to alt tab back to the Photoshop window and it will instantly work again for a short time. If I restart my PC then it usually works again for a time.

I have seen many people with this same issue, but have seen no solutions other than someone saying that turning off "Use Graphics Processor" fixed it. I will not even try that fix though as my workflow would be destroyed without rotation, zoom and pixel grid.

I have tried shutting off all kinds of things in Windows as suggested by people around the internet, but nothing fixes it. Some people have suggested turning off Windows Ink, but I need to have it on for my Huion to use pen pressure.

I am using the latest version of Photoshop. All of drivers on my PC are up to date.

These are my specs:


Please fix this in the next update. I'm losing my mind with this constant freezing.
