Unwanted Main Window Resizing in Photoshop CC

When I manually resize the main window in Photoshop CC, and then switch to a different image by clicking on a tab, the window resizes, usually just vertically. Extremely annoying!

How do I make it so that when I manually resize the main window, it stays that size.

Thanks in advance!

Are you Mac or Windows? Are you document windows docked or floating? A screen shot of before and after would also be helpful.

Hi, are you able to help with this? it's really driving me insane. Everytime i click on a smart object or open a new file, my window changes size when i use tabs. I want to keep using tabs as then everything is nestled, and doing a application frame makes it hard to work with other apps. I haven't had this issue on CC 2017

thank you.

I am having this same issue. Whenever i open a new a file or a smart object, it resizes my window to fit that canvas. Is there a way to stop this? so I can just have the  window size not automatically change?

i am on a mac, and i use tabs.

No solution for now. Talked to Adobe earlier today and nothing they told me to do worked. Had no problem with previous releases either. Real time eater here...

I am having the same problem since updating my OS to High Sierra and Photoshop CC 2018. Very annoying there is no fix for the main window resizing. I'm actually amazed there isn't more people complaining about it

In CC 2018 and now in CC 2019 when for example I have 2 images opened and I click on a tab of that is not active at the time (in no TABS mode), the winodow is going to be resized. Is it a bug? The only workaround I found is to click that document in any other place than on its tab. I do not like it as mostly I click on document tab - especially when I want to move it to other workspace location. That is really annoying to click a document in other place (especially when Rectangular or Brush tool is selected) to click and hold a tab on that document in another instance. The other document can be securely also clicked not in image area but on right image edge, but still this is workaround that I don't always remeber to do, and that is really bad solution when I have to do it for many documents I have opened, or when I switch them often by mouse click.

Perhaps not the same problem then. My issue is If I open a file and drag the window out, then double click an embedded smart object (for example), the main window resizes to the image size of the embedded file. Changing Preferences makes no difference nor does deleting preferences

I answered to dr_melzie, so the original poster that I found experienced the same problem like me. The only difference is that makes it even worse, that first document doesn't have to be resized, that second one by clicking its tab got resized as well. Of course I found this topic thanks to your last input.
