I wonder if the message means that there is no more room on your display to display an image or image window. A big change added in CC 2018.1 Is how adobe Photoshop ui scalling works its now via Windows scaling settings. Adobe worked with Microsoft on that. There may be some wimdows api Adobe now uses to manage display area space that is not working on you windows 10 Pro system correctly. It working fine one my Windows 10 pro systems.

On My surface pro 3 I had to create a new workspace for the one I created for my Surface pro 3 was all messes up when CC 2018.1 ui scaling started to work correctly. So it would be possible when you workspace was mapped out with the fixed working UI scaling that there was no room left on your display for an image window or area. I edit in floating windows.
Many thanks to all! I'm back to work. I'll be glad when they resolve the issue completely and I can use my customized workspace instead of having to use this work-around.
I'm having this same issue and I have no idea what to do! Deadlines looming? Help anyone? I've never seen this message in all my twenty plus years of working in Photoshop?!
Did you check your windows Display settings? are running your display at its native resolution? The real number of pixels your display displays.
I believe I am. How do I check my Window Display settings? This only started after the last PS update. My computer is less than four months old and I've not changed any settings for Windows? I have no idea what to do here....
OK - Got in back in gear, though I'm guessing only temporarily, by uninstalling PS and reinstalling. Opening PS after reboot. Tried to open PSD. Got same message. On a guess, changed Workspace to "Photography" (had been in Essentials) and it began working again. The latest update, IMHO, is as buggy as the day is long. How terribly disappointing. There are other quarks occuring since the update as well. I can't be the only one having issues. By the way, I'm working in Windows 10 on a new Dell Inspiron 15, 7000 Series with an Intel Core 2.30 GHz Processor on 16 GBs of RAM on a 64 bit OS, X64-based processor.
I'd like to submit a case on this, but I could use a little more information. Which version of Win 10 are you running?
Thanks Hannah. I'm running Windows 10 (home). The issue just started again a few minutes ago... Terribly frustrating! Especially as I have looming deadlines that I need to generate graphics for...
Sorry to hear that!
Thanks for the information. If you get a chance to look at the About page for the specific version of Win 10 (i.e. Win 10 1703,Win 10 1709, etc.) -- that would be helpful to know. I've submitted a case on this, so it's in progress.
Are you saying that you switched to the Essentials workspace and you still encountered the error?
Thanks. Windows 10 (home) Version 1709 OS Build 16299.192
I just removed and reinstalled PS once again. Same issue still happening. I have no idea what to do? Do you have any suggestion? Anything? I really need to have these graphics made within two hours.
As I understand it, this happens when your windows are docked, correct? (when the images are opened as tabs) Can you try undocking the images and see if that helps?
I tried that (I went to Preferences and Workspace) but it didn't resolve the issue.
Could you post a screenshot of the entire screen?
Also, what are your scale and resolution settings set to? https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4027860/windows-10-view-display-settings
Screen shots of your settings would help too.
I've only had this computer for a few months and have made no changes that I can recall to any of the default settings. This issue started after I updated PS with the last available upgrade a few weeks ago.
Try the following close Photoshop and open widows file explorer and make sure it view options are set so you can see hidden folders and files.
Navigate to the folder "C:\Users\YourWindowsUserID\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2018"
rename it to "C:\Users\YourWindowsUserID\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2018 Old"
Keep all old user data recorded your user id safe. Now starting Photoshop will create new saved user data for you user id no old save information will be used. See if Photoshop now works.
I ried reloading an earlier version of Photoshop 19.0 and the issue went away. Based on what I read above this seems like the best solution until the bug is fixed
That did the trick! Should it happen again, should I follow the same steps?
So you ended up reverting to 19.0? Or did you follow the steps that JJMack outlined for you?
I followed the steps that JJMack suggested.
I reverted to 19.0
What's the latest solution on this? I'm having trouble following this thread.
What OS version are you using? Do you have windows 10 creators edition and Photoshop cc 2018 version 19.1.1 installed?
