    What happens if you click the little green button with the plus sign in the upper left of the document window?

    In addition to the plus button, remember that you can resize the window from any edge. So you could drag down the top edge and then drag the entire window up.

    Not sure what the keystrokes are but you should try to reset workspace. 

     

    In Windows it is Window/workspace/reset xxxx

    You cannot size the image window from any corner but the bottom right corner in Photoshop on a MAC

    That was true for many years...but not anymore. Adobe started allowing window resize from any edge (not just any corner, but any edge) a couple of versions ago, on the Mac, to match Windows. On top of that, in OS X Lion, Apple itself now allows window resizing from any edge in any application. That said, even in Lion, I noticed that I had to move the Photoshop CS6 window edges away from the monitor edge before I would get the double-arrow resize pointer. Not sure if that's a bug. Here's a picture of what Photoshop window resizing looks like:

    Also, if resetting workspaces doesn't work, you could try a complete Photoshop preferences reset. Start Photoshop CS6 and press Command+Option+Shift, and a reset dialog box should come up. Click OK.
