Hi there!

This is my first post so hopefully I'm posting this in the right place! Anywho, a small bug that has been doing my nut in for a while now; when I'm working I often need to quickly move my whole Photoshop/Illustrator/InDesign program window from one screen to another and back again. Usually, as with any application, I just throw my cursor to the top of the screen, click and drag to pull the window across. This works with every program from Explorer to Chrome tabs and used to work fine with Adobe programs. For the last couple of years however, Photoshop, Illustrator etc will not allow you to do this unless your cursor is just a couple of pixels away from the edge of the screen. Not the end of the world but it's really frustrating when you're in a rush and gets in the way of workflow. I don't really understand why this is an issue as it never used to be and still isn't with every single other program I use. Any chance of a tiny update to fix this?

Hi Charlie,
Thank you for your post.  And yes, you posted in the right place.  We're sorry to hear about your frustration.  Are you working in Windows or MacOS?  The Photoshop team has not seen nor heard of this issue before.  Personally, I am able to drag and pull the top of my Photoshop screen to any display I want.

If you can share a video of the problem and the Help -> System Info of your Photoshop, that would greatly help us provide you the support you need.
