this is on a Mac and I'm not using the aplication frame.
that said. In the past the size of the window always used to stay the same size as whatever it was when the application was shut down or the last window was closed. Now when you open a new doc or a previous doc it takes up the whole screen and I have to grab a corner and make it smaller. Is there a setting I'm missing? Or is this a new behavior?
so do your windows open at the smaller size, or do they open up full screen? this is a new install on a new computer so I really doubt that the file is corrupted. sounds to me that either you do not know the answer and there is no setting to change this behavior.

Did you still try clearing your cache?

I didn't say that it is the answer. We're virtual - don't forget that. The only way we can help you is a step-by-step troubleshooting. If you did try the previous method but if hadn't worked, I'd have obviously posted other solutions for you. This is a case-to-case scenario.
If you still think you need clarification, post a screenshot of what you see on your screen to help us help you.
You have not answered my question. When you open a file/document does the window open full screen? this is in CS6 if you have not used CS6 you can not be of any help to me. I know how to troubleshoot I've been using Adobe software for years now. All I want to know is this new behavior not do this do that see if there is a problem.
If you can't answer my simple questions just say so. don't give me the runaround.
Also, if you dont have the Application Frame enabled, it may open your 'document' window to a bigger size that it may go underneath the panels to the right (in my screenshot) in which case you can try hitting the Green resize button on the document window (not necessarily have to drag and resize all the time) to see if that returns your document to normal.
Otherwise one option I could suggest to you is to enable application frame.
full screen means just that the new window opens up and takes up the full screen/monitor no I don't use the application frame its a painintheass the resize button does no good as it has not been resized. You could have saved yourself alot of time by just answering my original question by saying yes the new behavior is to open a window that fills the screen. unlike the old behavior of CS4 where the app remembered the window size. but then maybe you never used the older software.
This used to be such a helpful place.
You do know that even without Application Frame enabled, you can still choose whether you want to open your document as 'Tabs' or not, right?
Preferences > General > Check fo 'Open documents in tabs'
what does tabs have to do with anything?
All I asked was does the app remember the size of the window when it was last closed. You still have not answered that question. Instead you directed me to start deleting things without asking what I meant by full screen. now you tell me that I can have multiple tabs.
Well from all of your non answers I have come to the conclusion that CS6 does not remember the size of the window last used. If someone else comes along and knows of a setting in prefs to change this behavior thats great otherwise problem is solved. For someone who is so knowledgable I sure had a hard time getting anaswer from you.
thank you for your time.
I am experiencing the same annoying issue! I have been forced to move (temporarily, I hope) to DWCS6 with a recent Mac update to Mountain Lion. I should not have to keep manually resizing a document every time I use it because it opens in full-screen size by default. This will waste hours of production time as I deal with dozens of pages at once and hundreds or thousands of pages over the course of a business year. Just because a file came from another source doesn't mean it doesn't have a pixel specification (or other obvious size indicator). Even if it doesn't have such an indicator, if I save a file at a particular window dimension I do expect the application to remember it, opening it the next time at those same dimensions and opening subsequent windows at that dimension unless I specify (or save again) at a different dimension. DW's apparent default to opening all files in full-screen mode is a very poor workflow and business practice.
I certainly appreciate the convenience of template window dimensions being available, but I don't need or use them for most of my work.
Surely there is a way to overcome this problem. Is there a preference to set a default size in specific pixels to which a new file--or an existing HTML file that was never opened in DW before--will open? Remember those dimensions the next time the file is opened and all subsequent files until another specification is selected? Is there a way to instruct DW to acknowledge/respect an existing HTML file's page size specification when it opens it?
thank you so much!
Long-delayed follow-up: there is no solution. Full-screen document window is the default and cannot be changed by the user. You may find a tolerable alternative size using one of the workspace definitions in the drop-down menu (Window->Workspace Layout->). If you define a new (custom) workspace, it will not change the full-screen document window--only the appearance and position of panels, etc. Some have offered a work-around manipulating the application frame (http://forums.adobe.com/message/4694438#4694438), but that isn't always the best solution in terms of workflow.
I simply will not be able to build my 900-page web catalog this summer using Dreamweaver--I often have eight or ten web pages open at once, and would spend more time sizing and arranging windows than is available in the production schedule! And I certainly won't be able to use DW for my major site redesign coming shortly thereafter. I will probably have to find a Mac still using Snow Leopard to run GoLive or try a different product (maybe Freeway).
I have filed a feature request (http://adobe.ly/DWBug) to allow complete and permanent user control over default document window size and position, as well as the ability to turn on/off every panel, palette, and bar. I hope every frustrated CS user does the same!
