When opening LR Classic 9.2 it maximized its window size to take my entire screen no matter what the window size was when I had closed LR.  I have an iMac with Catalina 10.15.3.  Uninstalled LR 9.2 and installed LR 9.1 to fix the problem.  Its was too much of a PIA to have to resize the apps window every single time I opened LR to justify the upgrade's features.

It appears to be a Mac only issue as I'm not seeing this behavior using LR 9.2 on Windows 10 with latest updates.

This occurs on my LR 9.2 / Mac OS 10.15.3. Resetting preferences doesn't help.

I see it too on 10.14.6. Logging a bug with the team for Mac only.

On the contrary, I noticed it since the moment the app update itself.

My Mac OS is Catalina latest version.

Tried to reset preferences, but did not help.

It wasn't there in 9.1, so rolling back to that might be an option for you.  That's what I did.

Question: why would you WANT the window smaller than the size of the screen? I don't understand wanting that. I use 2 monitors, my iMac with the Grid View (as big as possible, but not Full Screen), and the 2nd monitor with "Full Screen, Loupe-Normal". PS-moving a window around to get at what's behind it is completely inefficient, use Command-H to hide it. -former Mac IT Pro.

Very simple, it is a bug and its is not the way it should be.

Any way I am used to have many windows filling my screen I have a favorite size for the Lr windows, always 10 photos per row, allway at my favorite size per photo preview.

And I use many plugins that opens their own windows.

I finally I don't have 2 monitors, but in that case my main monitors will be in the same way I always use and the secondary used for preview a single photo. 

Thanks for your suggestions they are simple workarounds for a BUG. 

Regards.

Different strokes for different folks I guess, Carlos.  While I have LR maximized when in the Develop module, I have lots of reasons to to want it to open full size at every launch.

When I'm annotating photos with metadata or looking up photos in response to email requests, I often have another app open side-by-side with LR, e.g. a Web browser or an email message.

I have the same problem. Mac, OS/X 10.15.3. 

Plus, whenever I view a photo in full screen (by pressing F), the LR window goes to full screen after I close out of full screen via Escape.

Exactly same thing happens to me, along with starting up in near full screen mode even though I've previously made the LR window smaller.
