Is it possible to have Bridge visible on one monitor and the preview window full size on another window?

I've seen some workarounds but none fit what I need. Win PC.

Extending the original statement, I also find Bridge to perform deplorable with multiple screens. The coders who created the original concept, many years ago, likely had only one screen available. I have two identical screens, side by side…

  • Can I maximize the view on both screens (spacebar) to compare images?
  • With one Bridge Window maximized, can I continue working in the other instance?


The answer in both cases is No.
This never worked and sure enough, this wasn't changed when multiple app windows

I am guessing that you mean to have the Preview Panel on another MONITOR?

If so then yes,  it is possible and I have my PC set up like that. 

Just drag the preview panel onto your other monitor.

I would recommend that, when you succeed in organising a suitable layout, you save it as a custom workspace.

I have no problem dragging the Preview Panel to any location on any of my two monitors. Make sure you drag the tab and are not just trying to resize. Which version of Bridge are you using? Please be specific and not just say "latest". I am on Windows 11 rather than 10 but I don't see that making a difference.

That is a shame, it would be really useful.
