Photoshop CC 2018: How to fix the document opening window size

I used to have a fixed document window size (with tabs) so that my tool panels don't overlap the image.  It was nice and clean.  Any file I opened went into the window as a new tab, sized to view the whole image.  Parts of the image were never obscured by other windows.
The problem is that opening a new image now resizes the document window to full size so part of the image is obscured by the tool panels.  It is a pain in the a*** to minimize the tool panels in order to resize the document window back to an open space on the screen.  Then, a Control 1 or Control 0 again resizes it again to full screen.
I can find no way in Windows Arrange nor  Workspace Preferences to change this most annoying behaviour.
I thought I saved my desired document window size in my Workspaces, but reverting to older workspaces does not fix the problem, nor does saving a new workspace with it resized the way I want.
It drives me crazy because images never open in the screen area I have set aside for images.
Is this a bug related to screen snapping problems people have with zoom re-centering, or am I missing something basic that doesn't seem covered in the documentation on workspaces?  I suspect it is not part of the new bug because it was also happening in CC 2017.

First, make sure you install the most current version (19.1.3) which was released this AM. If that doesn't solve it:

Can you post some screen shots of what you're seeing?
