Undocked document window resizes when switching between tabs in PS 2023

Photoshop 2023 is resizing undocked document windows when you switch between tabs on that window. This is infuriating because when you are using undocked windows, you often have other things open on the screen that you dont want obstructed. Additionally, it doesnt remember the window size when you go back to a tab that you previously resized. So if you are going between tabs frequently, you have to constantly resize the undocked window. Its ridiculous.

 

  1. Undock a photoshop document.
  2. Add multiple other open documents to the undocked window so that you have a few tabs
  3. Switch between the tabs and watch the window size change

 

Expected result: Window size should remain whatever size you resize it to (this is the behavior in every version I have used before 2023)

Actual Result:  Photoshop resizes it to fit the size of the document open on whatever tab you click on

I'm not sure that's what causes the problem, but can you check those options shown on my screenshot?

Not right now, but it did happen to me in the past. That's why I said I wasn't sure it would solve a problem, just offering a possible remedy.
Hope it helps!

That helped me, thanks! It still resizes a teeny bit, but so much better than before. If I open a new file after doing this, it still does resize that particular tab, but the others will remain the size that I resized it to.
