Hey!

I’m sorry you are having this issue. Could you provide some additional information so that we can try to better help you?

Which version of Postman? (Desktop, Browser etc.)
Can you check if you have a lot of history saved in the app? (in the History sidebar)

Yes, same issue here… using Postman desktop, REALLY slow since I updated to Windows 11, I tried updating to the latest version but it’s still the same :frowning:

Welcome to the community!

Sorry you seem to be having trouble with this right now. If you could refer to my previous comment above and provide some additional info, we can try to help with resolving this :smile:

Hi, I’m getting the same issue with the Windows 11 desktop app.
The app takes long to open for the first time (about a minute); after that, closing and re-opening is quick. Updated to latest version yesterday, and it didn’t fix the issue when I opened the app this morning.

App info:
Postman for Windows
Version 9.17.1
UI Version 9.17.1-ui-220427-0630
Desktop Platform Version 9.16.0
Architecture x64
OS Platform win32 10.0.22000

I don’t know if this is only Windows 11 related, because I’m having problems that sound similar as the problems in this thread with windows 10 too.

It works fine for a minute after opening and after the minute the app freezes but doesn’t say it’s not responding. When I try to open task manager, the task manager is not responding. Luckily I can close postman from the X on the upper right corner. After closing the app, task manager starts to work normally.

I was running old version of postman, but now I got it updated and the problem still continues. I also uninstalled the app and reinstalled with the newest version I downloaded today from postman website, but still after about one minute of usage the app freezes completely.

App info:
Version 9.17.1
UI Version 9.17.1-ui-220427-0630
Desktop Platform Version 9.16.0
Architecture x64
OS Platform win32 10.0.19044

Came here because I had the same issue. In my case, I was able to solve it by disabling Hardware Acceleration: Setting up Postman | Postman Learning Center

Hi, I’m also having this issue and it is really painful when I try to demo my API in a video chat.

After a fresh Windows boot it takes 2-3 minutes to see Postman window. Subsequent starts are almost immediate. I disabled HW acceleration, and deleted the cache, but no success.

PM Version: 9.19.3
Windows 11: 2200.675, x64
HW: i9 12900H, 32GB

Any suggestion/fix would be appreciated. Thanks.
