    Adobe Photoshop CS6 print function is extremely slow!

    (*Monitors please note: I wasn't sure if posting here was correct or not so please move to the appropriate location if necessary.)

    Lately Adobe Photoshop CS6 print function is extremely slow. It takes several minutes to prompt the print window up, then it's very sluggish while setting print preferences. Once "Print" is selected it once again takes a long time to send to the printer via a wired network.

    Odd thing is I have other Adobe software, Lightroom 6 & Photoshop Elements 2018, that can print the same file without issues.

    Not sure how to troubleshoot this. Please help.

    It seems to print at a normal speed now. I noticed in Lightroom 6 & Photoshop Elements 2018 the default printer was listed as Artisan 710 (Network). In Photoshop CS6 the printer was listed as EPSON510488. I checked the dropdown menu & Artisan 710 (Network) was listed there as well. When Artisan 710 (Network) was selected as default in CS6 all printed normal.

    I have no idea why the same printer is listed twice with different names & why it made a difference when
    Artisan 710 (Network) was selected but it does.
