Useless "ending window" from Photoshop

I use Bridge to open photos in Photoshop.  After PS processing I close the final window.  Recent versions of PS put up a useless window at this point.  It isn't a "real" window in that it can't be closed with Command-W.  Is there a way to prevent PS from creating this window, if it was "called" from Bridge?  (If not please make a way.)  I seem to recall that past versions of PS were less obnoxious in this context.

Do you have Disable the Home Screen  enabled in Preferences? Are you getting a kind of empty Home Screen when you close? I recall there was a bug about the Home Screen coming back to haunt you if you worked in Full Screen at all, and I know I got a blank Home Screen at some point as well, or along with this. We'd have to see a screenshot of this "useless window" if it's empty and you can't make it go away with both the latest version of PS and you have checked Disable the Home Screen, then let us know your OS and PS version and if at all possible, add a screenshot.

Opening from Bridge should have nothing to do with this issue.

Good solution!  When I was young, I would review each new version of software, learn what was new, and use the new features if I liked them.  Nowadays I never thought about what "Disable Home Screen" might mean.  Thanks!

Oh I'm so glad something worked. And I know what you mean. It used to be more exciting to learn new things, ferret out every feature. Now it's work and sometimes even overwhelming when we just want to get on with it. LOL
