Lightroom and Windows 10. I am getting rather peeved at the frequency of crashing/freezing in development mode while using Windows 10. I see I'm not alone. Any solutions yet?

Please seeĀ http://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/lightroom-2015-becomes-unresponsive-after-seve.... If you're using the AMD GPU, there is a new AMD display driver posted today that you can try.

Is it crashing or freezing? Those are two completely different behaviors.

Thanks for asking for clarity. As a non techie all I can say is it becomes unresponsive! Task manager closes it down and I start again! 47% of CPU being utilised at the time.

Updating the AMD driver seems to have resolved the problem. Thanks Simon and also Chris for engaging.
