In the new Bridge 2023 on Windows 10, I have this problem that when You have made Your own workspace, windows/panels that You will have shown, then when I click the "maximize/restore" button in the upper right corner, the panels alter their size.
In the Bridge 2022, I could that way make Bridge only a third in the width, with one colomn of thumbnails (content) in one panel, and the whole folder-tree in an other.......! That's a perfect way to select and drag images into other Adobe programs!
Bridge 2023 doesn't work that way any longer...............! 😞
