Slow typing for some reason
I have noticed there has been a recent issue with Dreamweaver when typing it is either a lag in the input or either it does a slight freeze. I have checked my own computer to make sure and have enough RAM to run it and other things in the background.
Even have disabled prior applications to test it and still a lag in the interface when trying to code HTML templates and other markups. The only one that doesn't have an issue filetype wise is coding CSS stylesheets. I don't know if this was reported before, couldn't find it searching for the issue earlier but this showing to be an issue and major one now that I have noticed.
None of these versions have the issue resolved, including 2021. I was so frustrated I purchased a new I5-10400 Windows Pro with 32GB RAM and 512 SSD. The first and only install was DW 2019. Same problem with typing and code or code/live view. Tried all of the tricks posted here, file list, linting and so on. The one big improvement was to uninstall the 19.2 and download a 19.0 version (with no updates), and then set the Creative Cloud to NOT run at startup. That reduced the delay on code, but the code/live is still horrible. Gave up, uninstalled that and went to 2021 as Nayan had suggested. It was WORSE, as bad as the .2 versions were. Went back to 2019 version 19.0. At least a 3 second delay is better than nothing until I can find another program to use.
We have addressed the slow typing issue in code view on windows in latest Dw 21.0 update.
Please update to latest Dw version 21.0 and let us know in case you are still facing the issue with Dw 21.0.

This was brought up in July 2020 and seen by Adobe's official hall monitor Karen who has had only this to contribute
I am french and i have the same problem
After deleting the Temp File List my DW works good
Thank you for help
This seemed to solve my issue. Waiting to see if deleting the key data hurts anything, but I don't actually know anything about why that key was there in the first place.
Thank you, for writing to us.
We are investigating an issue where increased number of entries in "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Dreamweaver 2020\Temp File List" is causing slowness in code view response.
Can you please try the below steps and let us know if the issue is resolved or if it still persists. It will help us identify if there are any additional scenarios where the slowness is occurring.
1. Quit DW
2. Launch registry editor by running regedit command in Win+R command window
3. Goto "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Dreamweaver 2020\Temp File List"
4. Backup "Temp File List" key by right clicking and selecting export in the context menu
5. Delete the "Temp File List" key
6. Launch Dreamweaver
