Photoshop: Hiding sometimes makes it irretrievable

Multiple times per day when I hide Photoshop (command+h), go to do something in another application, then click the Photoshop icon in my dock, Photoshop won't come back. I can right-click on the icon and select "Show" but it won't come back. I also use hot corners, but when I mouse over to show all application windows, it says "No available windows." I have to quit the application and restart it. I can right-click and select "Quit," and it will work, rather than having to force quit. Then it will be fine for a few hours before it does it again. I am running Mac OS 10.12.4 and recently wiped my computer to reinstall CC applications because they were all lagging. (SO much rainbow wheel.) Since doing this, I've encountered this Photoshop problem.

Apple recently released macOS 10.13.4 which should fix this issue with the current version of Photoshop. Please let us know if you're still having issue.
