Generate Fill toolbar location is irritating

All images in Photoshop now have the Generative Fill toolbar floating across the bottom and it gets in the way. It's not possible to dock that toolbar anywhere in the UX and while there's an option to "pin it" to a location, that toolbar location is pinned for only for a specific image.  If you are working on multiple images and select a different open image, the Generative Fill toolbar jumps back to floating over that newly selected image. 

IT'S ALWAYS IN THE WAY and covering up the bottoms of my images! 

I assume most folks (like me) are not using Generative Fill with each and every image, so I'd rather that the toolbar behave like the other tool sets and options (eg. having it across the top of the screen or as a docking panel on the side).

To show or hide the Contextual Task Bar  select “Window| Contextual Task Bar” from the Menu Bar to toggle its display on or off.

...or click the three dots and "hide".

It would still be nicer if that toolbar were dockable or appear as a contextual option across the top of the screen.  It's goofy that this particular tool doesn't behave like the rest of the Photoshop UI.  And once it's enabled again for one image you're editing, it remains enabled and floating over your other images as well until it's hidden/disabled again -- unlike the other docked and tabbed palettes that remain in place and off to the side once you're done with them. 

(Of course there are a bunch of other tools in Photoshop that don't behave consistently either...but they don't hover over my images continually.)

Jay@Leidos I'm not experiencing the same behavior with 25.0 release. I "docked" mine by pinning it to a dead area of the workspace and it holds even after quitting and relaunching PS until I reposition it. Its not document-based behavior.

For me, this is out of the way and simualtes a docked position until the team can come up with a better solution.

I agree! I like it open, but let me dock it or close it like the other tools, such as the Layers Panel. I don't need it all the time, but if I do, I'll open it. But if it's buried in a menu list, I will forget it exists.

I'm in 25.6.0 release, and I have the same issue as author.
I will disable it for now as D Fosse says.
