Windows Move Around

Every time I walk away from my computer--and then come back to jiggle it awake again, my windows have moved.

 

Always the same, too:  The main window drops a couple inches; the tool panels scatter to the same spots every time.  To fix it, I drag the main back into place and hit Workspace>Reset.  It's not a huge deal, but annoying as <expletive>.

 

Background:  macbook pro, M1 Pro chip, Monterey, two displays (built-in plus external by HDMI)

Hi there,

That doesn't sound like typical behavior. Could you please let us know the exact version of Photoshop you're working with? You can check the exact version of Photoshop by going to Help > System Info.

Also, please try resetting the preferences of Photoshop and let us know if it helps: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/preferences.html

 

Note: Make sure that you back up all your custom presets, brushes & actions before restoring Photoshop's preferences. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/preset-migration.html

 

Regards,
Sahil

Resetting Preferences clears the list of recently opened files. They will show again in the Home Screen when you reopen them.

 

It also puts you back on the workspace called "Essentials". If you didn't create a workspace before, arrange the panels now, then save it as a workspace in Window > Workspace > New Workspace.

I'm having exactly the same issues and it is very frustraiting.  I'm using Photoshop 23.3.1 on Mac OS 12.3.1 on a Mac Studio computer.  I try reloading saved workspaces to no avail - the main window drops two inches while the navigator, layers and color windows either move to the extreme left of the screen or close.  This is more than annoying.
