Photoshop will not display fullscreen | MacBook Pro 2018

Hello,

I am having trouble with Photoshop not displaying in fullscreen. I became a Creative Cloud member just today, so I am running all of the most recent updates. I am using a MacBook Pro 2018, with all updates installed, as well.

I've seen where a few people have referenced this problem in other posts, but I haven't found a resolution to my problem. I do not wish to simply hide the dock as many have suggested in other posts, I want for it to function as its own window. I favor using the trackpad to slide between open apps, but this does not allow for me to easily reach the desktop.

Please help, I feel so very confused.

I can tug the window lower and fill in that blank spot -- but the dock doesn't go anywhere. It always acts as a minimized window, no matter how you adjust it. This can't be the way that it's supposed to display, is it?

I wasn't aware that you could run Photoshop in Safari. I have it running as its own app, not through or with anything else. You are definitely right, selecting full screen would work for the Safari browser. However, I can not remove the dock at all. In other words, Photoshop never operates fully in its own window.

I assume that's not how it's designed to operate...? Again, as demonstrated in the second screen grab that I shared in the original post, I can not view the desktop when operating Photoshop unless I close the app. Is this the same for everyone else?

yes, I guess you always have the dock. however, if you have a second screen you can use the full screen, not sure what you mean but my PS is always running I just click safari and it overlaps the PS

Hmm, it's just hard to imagine that the dock is always visible. Why wouldn't it function like every other app and operate in its own window? It just displays like a minimized window. Anyway, thanks for your help. Just frustrating.

The Dock has to always display.  That's a Mac OS convention.  You can make the Dock smaller or move it or even temporarily hide it, but if the Dock is visible, it always sits "above" other apps.

Sorry,
David
