I recently switched to PS 2022. I was used to use the feature "floating windows" in my old version. When I use it now, every document shows up as an own tab in my Windows 11 taskbar. Is there a way to prevent this? It might work if you only work with 5 or 6 documents at the same time, but imagine working with 10 or more documents...

 

Thank you very much in advance!

Hi there, 

 

Thanks for reaching out. We understand your concern. It seems to be changed with Windows 11 update. 

Is it specific to Adobe applications or all applications?

 

You may try to reset Photoshop preferences back to defaults and check if that helps. Here's the article for the steps: https://adobe.ly/3ceal5t Also, back up the existing Photoshop preferences if you have any custom brushes, actions, and workspace: https://adobe.ly/2vNz6FG
Once done re-enable Floating Window and see if that helps.

Let us know if this helps.

 

Thanks,
