Rstudio freezes when knitting

Hi All,
I installed R, then Rstudio.
I created new Project and new R-markdown file from template.

I run Knitting option, and it all freezes.

I'm on windows 10.
Also Rstudio frequently goes into not responsive state, even after fresh system start.
Do you have any ideas, what is wrong?


Apparently it has something to do with working on multiple screens.

When I use Rstudio on a laptop screen it works fine. When I move Rstudio window to the second screen it hangs while knitting.

Hi, welcome!

Have you tried changing to software rendering?, you can change it by holding the Ctrl key while opening RStudio, then you should see this menu and change the "Rendering Engine" to "Software".

Perfect, now Rstudio works on all screens!
