Photoshop will not maximizing/expand from taskbar

After updating to Photoshop CC 20.00 I am having issues where the program will not expand from the task bar. The program is running, but clicking on the icon on the taskbar to maximize the window does nothing. Hovering over the icon gives me a full-screen preview of the window, but I cannot actually expand it. I'm essentially locked out of the program even though it is running and I have active documents open - which is frustrating obviously. I'm forced to end the task in the task manager and lose my work. I've noticed this issue seems to happen after waking the PC from sleep.

Any ideas would be great.

Thanks, I did find that solution in my search for answers but unfortunately it didn't work for me.

It only happens with Photoshop so I'm leaning towards attributing the problem to the software and not the OS, but who knows.

Sorry to hear that. I'm a Mac user myself and wouldn't know what might be causing this.

It may be the way Photoshop is interacting with your graphics card or drivers. Can you uncheck "Use Graphics Processor" under Preferences > Performance and see if the problem goes away?

I am having this exact issue. The app can be minimized and maximized many times throughout the day, but after the system is put to sleep mode, Photoshop will not maximize. Hope a fix comes from this soon.

I have this issue, on a PC, Windows 10. Very frustrating. So far only with PSD CC 2019.
