I know this is talked about in many posts but the fixes are all too old or they don't work for me.  When using a mouse, it doesn't hang, when using the wacom, it does.  Polygonal lasso tool especially doesn't work.
WindowsInk selected
Latest drivers for wacom
Installed older legacy drivers per suggestion of another post
This has been happening for some time so I don't think uninstalling a windows update is going to do the trick.
The only way to get PS to stop hanging, ( and this happens with a lot of memory intensive commands ) is to switch to another window or program and then switch back and it is unhung.  This is a real workflow killer to say the least
Using PS CC 2018

Thanks for your help

Yeah, I'm using an Intuos 3 also. I loved it with Windows 7, but Windows 10 is a nightmare. From what I have read elsewhere, others are placing the blame on MS/Windows and their unwillingness to work with Wacom. Wacom's inability to develop a driver that will work with Windows 10 us a real PITA and will probably continue to be so.
