Hello.
In mac os El Captain double click to photoshop header zooms window instead of minimize it.
All other apps works correctly, only photoshop behaves this way. Plz fix.

Thanks for reporting this issue. The preference for what to do when double clicking on a title bar has changed. It used to be minimize or nothing, on 10.11 it is minimize, maximize, or nothing.
The behavior that you are observing will typically be the setting that you had before upgrading to 10.11. On my system, the window always minimizes.
We are addressing this issue.

I can't discuss future release schedules (partly because I don't know exactly).
In the meantime try the following from the "Terminal" application
To zoom on double click:
    defaults write NSGlobalDomain AppleMiniaturizeOnDoubleClick -bool false
To minimize on double click:
    defaults write NSGlobalDomain AppleMiniaturizeOnDoubleClick -bool true
Hope it works for you & happy Monday
