I get practically zero info about why this is happening. All I know is that if I do something like open up a file in VSCode while the editor is open, or if I have a browser tab and click on a link that takes some time to load the website, Godot randomly stops responding. Nothing appears in the Godot terminal log for info, except one time it said something like it was erasing the app data for something. But I can't even get a copy of that because the editor and the terminal crash and cause my computer to freeze until they're done crashing.

I'm not trying to run a game or anything; I just have the editor open and then I open some other random thing and it freezes and crashes. I don't know how to debug this. Is there a way to just wipe out all Godot data on my computer except for my projects? Or does anyone have any other ideas to fix this? I tried downloading the Godot 3.2.1 to see if that fixed anything and it didn't.

It might be the application hang timeout that's set too low; the 'application.exe has stopped responding' dialog box will show up because of the inactivity. Here's a question on stackoverflow about it.

Thank you. Honestly after I updated windows to 1909 and restarted it, things seem to be working now. So I guess my computer just had to reset itself or something.
