Hey, I've installed Photoshop and Illustrator on my new Mac laptop and this is how they open.. Why they can't go full screen. Did somebody had the same issue?

Photoshop uses its own Full Screen mode, not the macOS full screen mode. 

 

Full screen using macOS uses Spaces:

See the reply from Senior Product Manager @Jeffrey Tranberry for the official explanation as to why Photoshop does not use Spaces:

To use Photoshop's full screen mode, you can use the View menu > Screen Mode or the keyboard shortcut "F" to toggle between the three modes. Escape will also take you back out.

You can zoom in and fill the gray box area with your artboard, if you would like.
