above of blue line is CS5 & Blow is CS6.. see the difference Photoshop Genius team is making photoshop more flexible..

We also can't double click on the panels' gray bar to minimize the panel, we will have to right click on it to minimize & open it & also we don't have available option in that menu for to mark on double click for open & minimize tab group,

I know if Photoshop team don't wanted to change them, then they must say we have changed it according to people's idea or we had requested may people they don't want flexible Photoshop.... hahahaaaaaaa Well done Adobe..

if you can't make it best then don't make it more bad..

The Application Bar was intentionally removed. A majority of users told us they'd rather have the extra vertical space for their images than the Application Bar.

All of the commands are available elsewhere or can be access more easily with keyboard shortcuts:

Mini-bridge is accessible from the bottom panel (now a part of the default UI).

Cmd + Opt + o (Mac) Ctrl + Alt + o (Windows) to launch Bridge.

Show Guides: Cmd + ; (Mac) Ctrl + ; (Win)
Show Grids: Cmd + ' (Mac) Ctrl + ' (Win)
Show Rulers: Cmd + r (Mac) Ctrl + r (Win)

Zoom level can be control via keyboard shortcuts or UI found at the bottom of the document window.

You can access the arrange options under the Window>Arrange> menu

Screen mode has been added back to the bottom of the tool bar.

CS Live has been discontinued.
