I installed CS 6 yesterday. My system runs 64 bit Win 7. In Preferences > Interface, as I did in CS 5, I unchecked both Open Documents as Tabs and Enable Floating Document Window. However, unlike CS 5, in CS 6 images 'insist' on positioning themselves in the upper left corner of CS 6 and will cover both the options bar and the tool bar. For example, this will happen after opening an image if I try to move it or if I enlarge the image window (CTRL-0). If I open two images and try to move one so I can see both at the same time, the one I try to move will not stay where I put it but instead will reposition itself to the upper left, and cover the options bar and menu bar.
As you might image, this makes working in CS 6 difficult and inconvenient. I assume this is a bug, and wonder if there are any workarounds or other solutions. To this point, I have not yet uninstalled and re-installed CS 6. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
There is a solution, but I can't remember what it was. Was aired about 5? days ago.
If I remember correctly the windows kept moving up in the window each time he zoomed in.
Maybe it will come to me latter.
That's a known glitch in cs6 if you have the taskbar on the top or left on the desktop.
The workaround until it's fixed is to either auto-hide the taskbar or move it to the bottom of right side of the desktop.
Thanks to both Curt and R_Kelly. While I don't like the task bar at the bottom of the screen, moving it from the top to the bottom solved the problem. But I look forward to Adobe fixing this, as I really, really, really hate the taskbar on the bottom.

Can we assume you hate the Auto-Hide feature even worse? That's what I use with my Taskbar on top. No problem with window positioning.

The answer to your question is 'probably'. I like things to stay put, ideally where I want them. So far my feeling is that having the task bar on the bottom is the lesser of the two 'evils'. But your note reminds me to give auto-hide another try. Thanks.
