Photoshop CS5.1 running on Win7 64bit. NVidia Quadra FX 3700, 16GB Ram

Switching from 'Standard Screen mode' to 'Full screen mode':

There appears to be a Gamma or Brightness shift when applying this toggle.

To replicate - Please use a 16bit 1k square with a gradient going from left to right Black -> White and press 'F'. Notice the lower register grey's to black. They will shift upwards in brightness in both 'Full screen' modes.

If this is a bug, please address this in an update if possible as there should not be any gamma shift when going to full screen mode.

Many thanks.

CS5 is 2 versions old, and won't be getting any updates.

And have you tried updating your video card driver from the GPU maker's website?
