Which version of InDesign and OS?
Windows 10 and I would assume the latest version of InDesign? I have a cloud membership that keeps it updated. All i can find in the freezing is 2015.
The screen you are seeing , is the Help screen for InDesign's Touch Workspace.
You need to click on "View all Gestures" to get past this screen.
When you do so, you will be shown the second help screen.
You need to click on "Get Started" there.
New document dialog will show up and you can create a new document in InDesign.
What you see there, is the Touch Workspace for InDesign.
You can use that simplified workspace for your work, or Switch to other workspace from the Workspace drop down on the top right corner of the screen.
It will have "Touch" (Present Workspace) written on it.
Hope this help.
Let us know if this works for you.
I am having the same issue with Windows 10 and Indesign 2017. I get to the Gesture page and it locks before I can click on View all Gestures.
