Another, already 3rd bug I found in CC2018 (19.1.2) on Windows 10. I can't say in which version / update that started as I switched directly from CS6 EXTENDED to CC2018. I could not find any relevant topic on this forum so I created new one, however that is impossible noone reported it yet, is it?!

After using 'win d' (that takes me to desktop) or changing application by 'alt tab', and then come bad to Photoshop any document isn't displayed. If I use 'ctr tab' that selects document as active - next opened in a row, nothing happens. I may do many operations on document that is not visible (incl. its window). Trying to change 'Screen Mode' or checking in Workspace Preferences 'Open Documents as Tabs' does not change anything. They are still not accessible. I tried it on 2 different Computers (work and home)!

The only what I can do is to click on Ps icon - that is on Down Windows Bar - and select any document there is opened. Still I can't switch to any other untill I choose it this way as well. That is of course not a solution, but alternative and longer way to access opened document. I leave often to desktop or move between applications and I never had problem with it (CS6). I am not sure how that was in 19.1.1 vers.

Good catch, Kukurykus.
