Photoshop 2024, hate it!

I just bought, upgraded, and downloaded Photoshop 2024.  When I open it I see the usual Photoshop tool bars but I also see my MacBook Pro desktop in the work area!  The tool bars just ring around my desktop icons.  Very fustrating.

How do I get the normal Photoshop background back?

 

Thx...

Also, how can I make .jpg my default extension when I go to "Save As"?  The only option I get is the standard Photoshop extension.  If I want to post my photos on a fourm somewhere most only take .jpg.

Go to the Window menu, and right at the bottom uncheck Application Frame.  Or maybe the other way round (I am a Windows kind of a guy.)

This looks pretty good for one of my problems.  

 

However, in Photoshop 2024 I can't find "Perferences".

I hate it, I hate it, I hate it

It seems to take twice as long to do anything and they have ruined all my favourite tools. The gradient tool, I mean WTH have they done to it. I keep going back to older and older versions, but it seems I can't go back far enough. 

 

What else is out there? Is it time to start looking for something else.
