Photoshop: How about an "application frame" for second monitors?

How about an "application frame" for second monitors? I park most palettes there, but when I also have InDesign or Dreamweaver (e.g.) open and their palettes on the second monitor as well, it can get awfully cluttered. I'd love to only see the palettes for the active application, even if others are open.

Hello, did you try to stretch the application frame, once Ps is floating, so that it covers both screens? (of course, that requires screens with the same orientation/size)

I'm on Win 10 in my office, so there's no application frame in Photoshop. But I know it well from when I'm working on Macs, and would love to have it here for the second monitor.

Just put different apps in a different workspace. One of the biggest advantages of the Mac is Spaces. The Win 10 implementation of virtual desktops is lame but at least you are able to separate out different apps.

That's true, and better than nothing.

There is still an application background... float Ps, and stretch its boundaries...

There are several utilities out there which keep only the active application visible while working. I use one called Isolator which nearly blacks out all background apps to help ease eye-strain.
