Power BI Desktop Locking Up

Desktop is freezing up on me every single day and at random times, I could be copying and pasting a visual or trying to sign in to a model or changing a slicer or just clicking refresh to a direct connect model. It will feeze. The only way out is Task Manager and end task. Come on Microsoft, this is release behavior that was common three years ago. I thought we were past this kind of thing. It is completely stifling my productivity. I'm clicking on file save all the time now, just to try to avoid losing work and having to do it over again. So frustrating.

Status: Investigating

You can try to set 'Load Tables simultaneously', Maximum allowed and clear the cache of Power BI Desktop in Options and settings to check it again.

In addition, If there are multiple threads in the background, consider reducing some to check whether this could be mitigated.

I have been having the same issue since the addition of Microsoft Edge WebView2.  This is happeing every day.  I have tried everything.  I am not loading data, so the suggestion doesn't apply.
