How to improve Scrivener performance?

Scrivener hangs and becomes unresponsive on my laptop way too often. Mostly upon closing it.

These are the specs:
Intel core i7-7500U CPU @2.70GHz 2.90 GHz (dual core)
Ram 12.0 GB
W10 64bit
GPU Geforce 940MX

Any suggestions?

Is this happening with all projects, or only with certain ones? Does it seem to be associated with projects that may have very large documents, e.g., images?

If you are creating archives ‘on close’ it’s normal to have some delay if the project is big.

It happens with most projects regardless of size.
