I contacted Adobe support a few days ago regarding Adobe
Photoshop 2018 Organizer freezing when returning to the main screen after a search.  Adobe Support found that the issue wasrelated to two graphics cards being installed on my computer and deactivatedone of them to solve the problem.  At thetime it was thought that the issue was caused by the two graphic cards  (Intel(R) HD Graphics 630 and NVIDIA GeForceGTX 1050) conflicting.  However I havesince discovered that the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 is the one causing the issue..   

I am running Windows 10. Can this issue be investigated please (and resolved if possible)?

As far as I know, if a card is not compatible, only the card manufacturer can solve the issue. The general advice is to upgrade the driver directly from the manufacturer's site.

I am curious about what you expect from a graphic card like this in the editor or the organizer.  If you have a look at the preferences in the editor and organizer, you'll see that the graphic adaptor is used in rare situations only.  For the organizer, it's to play videos. For the editor, it's useful for some filters.

For Photoshop Elements, I think the advantage of those graphic adaptors is negligible, which is not the case with Premiere Elements.

I do not need this graphics card for Adobe Photoshop Elements.  However it may be useful for my Pinnacle Studio 21 video editing.  I will see if there is an upgrade for the driver available.
Thanks
