using the latest Photoshop CC 2015.5.1 with the latest Windows 10 64bit (Build 14393), I noticed that the toolbar at the bottom no longer disappears in Photoshop's full screen mode. I tried all "flavours" of the full screen mode by toggling through them with the "F" key and.

The Windows toolbar seems to be overlaid at an opacity of around 50% on top of the image displayed in Photoshop. In other words, I can still see the image which I'm editing shine through, but it's not usable. Here's a screenshot:

A work-around is to manually disable the Windows 10 toolbar prior to opening Photoshop and then enable it again once I'm done with Photoshop work. This is not ideal.

It would be great if someone from Adobe could create a bug report for this, or could let me know how I can do so myself. Happy to supply screenshots and system information.

  • Unhappy that there's a regression bug in the full screen mode
