Hi, it looks like you are coming from an old version, select the Zoom tool, and, in the Option bar on top, uncheck Scrubby zoom, this way, you can marquee the area that you want to zoom into.

Thanks for providing the screen shots, but unfortunately, they are no help because they are too small to see what is going on.  You need to provide full resolution screen shots of your entire workspace showing layers panel and anything else relevant to your issue.

Ann, I am sorry to be a pain, but the dpi doesn't make any difference.  We are only interested in the size in pixels.  I'm a Windows user so don't know how you take a screen shot on a Mac.  On Windows we usually press the Print Screen key, that copies the screen to the clipboard. 

 

My main screen is 2560 x 1440 pixels.  The active part of your upload is 303 x 360 pixels and way to burred to have the first clue what we are looking at.

We also need to see the Entire workspace with layers panel visible.  Something like this

image.png

Try and describe your issue again, with as much detail as you can.  If English is not your first language, use your own language and we'll use the translate function.  The more you tell us, the better the chance of a useful answer for you.

Thanks again. Trying again. Is this better?
1. I want my Layers, Color, Character, Paragraph palettes attached to R
side of workspace. Plz see 1st one. So that if I move the R side of the
workspace, the palettes go with the R side as default. But instead, they
are staying stuck and not moving with the R side of the workspace. Even
tried setting new workspace.

2. Want default font size to be 18 but it keeps coming in as 300 whether
open new page or open one created before with the smaller size font.

3. Is there a way to get rid of these explanation tools windows when I
click on a tool. Don't need the tools explained.

4. Is there a way to change save as so goes to jpeg or psd or what I want
instead of having to save as a copy to get what I want.

OK, we can see what's going on now.  You have three separate instances of Photoshop open.

The Layers and Character panels on the right, belong to one of the two Photoshops that are hidden behind the front most.  We know this because we can see those panels in front most Photoshop. 

What's more, the rear most instance has focus. We know this because that one has the Red/Orange/Green icons active in the top left corner.  So the Photoshop that is waiting for input is hidden behind the other two in front of it.

Save your work and close each Photoshop instance.

Open just one instance of Photoshop, and maximize it (I imaging that means clicking the green icon top left corner.

Set one of the default Workspaces, and then reset it.  That will tidy things up.

i.e. Window > Workspace > Esentials (default), followed by Window > Workspace > Reset Essentials.

image.png

 

Now you can arrange your panels manually, and save as a custom workspace.

 

I also suggest you follow Jeff's advice and go Window > Arrange > Consolidate All to Tabs

image.png

 

Make these changes to Preferences

Seew if that gets you close to where you want to be.  Ask if we can help any more.

Look only at the front one of ScrnShot_Pallettes on R.png. That is the
Photoshop that is screen shot showing everything and is not open Photoshop.
There were 2 other screen shots under it that you can see the upper L
corners of behind that screen shot on top.

The only open Photoshop is called ScrnShot_Pallettes on R.png. That's the
live Photoshop and I was trying to capture a full screen shot for you.

You can see the layers, color, character, paragraph palettes are stuck
outside on the R on the desktop and are not attached to the work space
that the screen shot of what appears to be called
Screenshot 2 choose tool.psd

The 4 palettes that you see on the top screen shot are in the screen shot
and not live. They are only showing when I have a full desktop shot and the
workspace goes all the way across desktop to R BUT... if I move the
workspace in... they stay way over there and won't move with the workspace.
So that screen shot is not a live image.

What appears to be 3 Photoshops open is not = it is 3 screen shots on top
of each other... not live Phtoshop = only screen shots.

The only live Photoshop is ScrnShot_Pallettes on R.png with the screen
shots I was trying to get showing.

I tried to capture the entire screen including how when Photoshop is open=
the layers, color, character, paragraph palettes should be attached to the
workspace BUT instead... they stay stuck out on the desktop and are not
attached. What I want is the pallettes attached to the open workspace so
that when I move the R side of the workspace in... they move in with it....
Screenshot_Palletes not attached shows that when I moved the R side of the
workspace to L.... the pallettes did not go with it.

I hope I am explaining it better.... Thank you.
Attached new window to hopefully explain better

I am now struggling to understand your issue.  You need to maximise the Photoshop window so it fills the screen, and then arrange the panels, and save as a custom workspace.  If you only have one screen, then the default function key shortcuts might be useful as they let you quickly toggle the most used panels on and off.

 

image.png

Something like this might work. The panels (Yellow highlight) are taking up a lot of screen space, but they can all be toggled on and off with function keys. The Narrow strip (cyan highlight) are minimized minor panels.  You click to expand (like the Character panel below) and click again to minimize. This keeps them out of the way when not in use, but makes them much faster to access than using the Window menu.  The toolbar (green highlight) is double row with most of the tools I use in their own space so you don't need to use the fly-outs to access them.  It takes up very little extra space, and is a significant time saver.

 

When you have everything arranged, save it as a custom workspace, and check the Shortcuts, Toolbars and Menus which will save them with the workspace.

image.png

 

I actually use three screens so use the Function keys to trigger simple Actions that set and reset my workspaces.  This is super useful as we tend to move panels about for working convenience and screen shots, and it is amazing to be able to make everything tidy again by pressing a single key.

 

This is 5680 pixels wide (I only use 16:10 monitors) and having all those panels always available is a huge boon to your workflow.

I hope we are getting close to having you sorted out, as this thread has been a bit of chore. 😞
