Just as the title says, homestead desktop freezes when it gets to the "opening page" portion of startup and will not go further.  Help is greatly appreciated as I cannot do much editing without the desktop version of sitebuilder.

Is it all sites or just one? You should be able to edit in Sitebuilder Plus online.

You will want to follow the instructions linked below to see if it improves the situation.

It hangs on all sites.

Unfortunately, there are several things I can do in desktop that I can't do in online.  The most important being that I use layering and in the online version it is virtually impossible to do well.  I also cannot use ctrl to selectively select items.

Layering should work in Plus, and you use shift instead of ctrl. Unfortunately, you can't deselect a single element, so if you grab one by mistake, you do have to start over.
