Option-click on green button (zoom button) of your Photoshop window.
Still nothing happens, it just resizes the window
Have you tried working in Full Screen Mode?
Or are you talking about Application Frame?
Could you please post a screenshot to illustrate the issue?
Okay i see I haven't provided the right amounts of detail, and thats my fault.
Pic after I clicked green button; After pressing green button - Album on Imgur
Pic after I click button again; After I click green button again - Album on Imgur
What it should look like is exactly just like when you maximize any other program example; Safari.
When I try and option click exact same thing happens.
Photoshop is the only program this "error" occurs in
Hope this helps a little to clarify the problem
I don’t quite seem to get what the issue is, but then I do not use the Application Frame to begin with.
And again: Why not use Full Screen Mode?
Please post screenshots on this Forum directly in the future.
It basically is that I can't do the same thing with my window as I can with example Safari.
See how the icon bar is gone, and the top menu bar is gone too? I just really like working while my program is being maximized, and that I can't do what Photoshop anymore.

Actually, Photoshop hasn’t changed one bit here. It’s Apple that changed.
Photoshop still works the same way it has for many years. If you want the menu bar to go away, you need to use the full screen mode that’s been built into Photoshop since the 1990s: Choose View > Screen Mode > Full Screen Mode (or press the keyboard shortcut, F, until the menu bar goes away).
The down side of this is that the green button in Photoshop has never allowed you to enter full screen mode. The reason is that the green button's behavior is tied to the Mac system’s full screen mode, which is different than and was introduced long after the Photoshop full screen mode.
Photoshop has never supported the Mac full screen mode. It continues to use its own.
So what changed? Years ago, the green button in Mac OS X did not put a window into Mac full screen mode. In a recent version of OS X, after Apple decided to add a full screen mode to OS X, they made the green button a shortcut to Mac full screen mode. But since Photoshop uses its own traditional full screen mode instead of the newer Mac one, Photoshop doesn’t use the green button to go into full screen mode. This applies to Illustrator and InDesign too…you cannot use the green button to go into full screen mode. You must use the Adobe full screen mode.
Adobe applications (with the exception of Acrobat) do not support the Mac full screen mode.
Lightroom also uses Mac full screen mode.
Thats just really strange, since I just a few days ago were able to go full-screen mode like im able to on safari.
But thanks for clarifying either way
I would also like to have the Mac native full screen mode in Photoshop, where you can cycle through the full screen apps with the 3 finger swipe. Adobe XD has this but Photoshop does not, expanding Photoshop only means that it takes up the Desktop screen in mission control which I don't like to have applications full screened in.
