I have installed Matlab 2020b on my macbook pro with M1 chip.
Matlab is launched well, but when I click anything, it responses very very slowly with the message "processing" in the left bottom for about 5 minutes.
After that, it works well.
How can I fix it?

I recently had issues where window snapping apps such as Rectangle, Magnet etc. will slow down Matlab GUIs to the point you described.
If you are using any of them, turn them off and try matlab again.

Thank you so much, Magnet caused the issue for me as well 👍

MATLAB R2020b Update 3 and later are supported on Apple silicon Macs through the Rosetta 2 translation environment. You might be using the earlier releases/update of MATLAB that’s why it is slow.
Refer to the following MATLAB Answers for more details.

FYI there is now a beta version of release R2022a running natively on Apple Silicon. The Answers post to which Aakash Mehta linked has been updated with more information.
