Problem with Resizing & Proof Colors after latest update

Photoshop CC updated yesterday on my PC (Win7 64-bit Pro) and there are two problems that I am now seeing:
1) Resizing using CTRL+0 no longer properly resizes the image to fill my screen with my screen. I have "Zoom Resizes Windows" checked under preferences, just as it was prior to the update. The resized window only takes up a small portion of the screen. I have my screen resolution proper set to 90 dpi.
2) Under the VIEW tab, when I click CTRL+Y, it should toggle the Proof Condition and show a check mark to the left of "Proof Colors" in the drop-down menu. But no check mark exists.

Photoshop hasn't had an update since December. So what update are you referring to?

Hi Chris,

Yesterday, Adobe installer or something opened up and showed two programs that said there were UPDATE(s) for Photoshop CC and Bridge CC.

The version is now 2014.2.2 Release.

Nonetheless, something's goofy.

I don't know of any updates yesterday.

Possibly you are referring to the Camera Raw updates from several weeks ago?
That would not cause problems with keyboard shortcuts.

In any case, I'm suddenly having those weird problems and it wastes tons of time dragging the corners as I try to resize, say, a vertically-oriented image to fill the vertical portion of the screen.

So, the 2nd issue of no check mark next to the Proof Colors menu item resolved itself after I restarted Photoshop.

Still, the resizing of the images to fill the screen is driving me crazy.

Can you post a screenshot of your main display with Photoshop visible?

Here are the files

- Image shown after ALT+CTRL+0

It seems to think that the monitor has a boundary somewhere in the middle of the window.

I thought It might have been a case of someone mistakenly resizing the application frame, but it appears that is not the case.
So I have no idea why the document window might be sized that way.

I figured out that it's a bug:
I have two monitors of different resolutions. The main monitor is an Eizo which is known by Windows 7 (64-bit) as #1, and where the main Photoshop window is displayed. The 2nd monitor (#2) is a cheap LCD monitor that I use for tool palettes.

The displays are "extended" and my graphics card is an AMD Radeon HD 5800 Series.

When I make the resolution higher for the 2nd monitor, the resized image on Monitor #1 will increase (use up more of the bottom of the window). Still, the resolution of monitor #1 can only go so far and cannot get as high as my Eizo monitor.

So, there you have it. This hadn't happened in earlier versions before. It just suddenly started after updating to a newer version a few weeks ago.
