I must say that full screen apps is a wonderful idea. I can start in such a way some of the apple apps (safari, imail, numbers) - I like switching between them. It will be desirable to enable this option for Ligtroom & Photoshop (both CS and Elements) to behave in similar way under new Mission Control stuff...

Photoshop can't be maximized using the green button of the main window in mac OS X, the dock seems to block it, leaving unused space. This issue is very annoying. It would be excellent if you could fix it, making an equivalent of "control + command + f" mode in google chrome

As of versions 6.6 and CC2015.6, this is supported in Lightroom.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Photoshop Window Won't Expand To Full Screen On Mac.

Running Mac OS Sierra 10.12.3. When I expand the program with the green button on my Mac. the window remains on the desktop. It does not go into a new tab and the doc does not hide. Using Lightroom the program goes full screen and appears in a new desktop tab. I've called tech support and they can't fix the issue within the program. This is a software glitch that hasn't been fixed in months.

This is a problem that goes back quite some time. Lightroom full-screen is very nice, you get all the screen space and the tab is named "Lightroom". I noticed that Nimbus follows the Lightroom model. I don't know why Photoshop doesn't follow suit.

Please Adobe - make the UX consistent for the imaging applications!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Can't go fullscreen on photoshop..

For a while now i have not been able to go fullscreen in Photoshop. Instead of the 2 arrows you have to expand to window and make it fullscreen. It randomly became a '+' sign. Lightroom isn't affected by this problem, but photoshop cc 2018 is. Contacted the customer service and we have literally tried everything but nothing seems to work. After doing some research i found out this exact problem came up during photoshop 2017 and an older MacOS sierra version.. 

I need to fix this..

I cannot believe this has not been implemented for Photoshop yet!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Photoshop will not display fullscreen | MacBook Pro 2018.

Hello,

I am having trouble with Photoshop not displaying in fullscreen. I became a Creative Cloud member just today, so I am running all of the most recent updates. I am using a MacBook Pro 2018, with all updates installed, as well.

I've seen where a few people have referenced this problem in other posts, but I haven't found a resolution to my problem. I do not wish to simply hide the dock as many have suggested in other posts, I want for it to function as its own window. I favor using the trackpad to slide between open apps, but this does not allow for me to easily reach the desktop.

Please help, I feel so very confused.

This problem exist already for many years and Adobe doesn't want to fix it. There is no any solution or a way to solve this problem. It is just a way photoshop app works. That's it.

The thread describing this problem exists already for 8 years. They have been promising to fix it for a long time. Don't be so silly.

I'll believe that they will fix it when I see it - this issue has been ongoing for quite a while and there has been no indication that they plan to fix it!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Is there still no solution for the lack of fullscreen mode on a mac?.

I use Photoshop & InDesign regularly and prefer it to be on fullscreen as it's easy to switch between apps and allows full focus on the work I'm doing on the artboards. It's been almost 2 years since the CC updates. I can't work on fullscreen. Please fix this soon.
