I was forced to reinstall my Photoshop. So there are a few settings I'm trying to get back up.

This one in particular is driving me mad because I can not figure it out. Below is my attachment of what I"m looking to 'activate'. In the image you can see the red/yellow/green icons that open/close the entire application background frame. Right now those icons are missing.

So basically I can't minus/close out my photoshop screen to maybe look at other open windows or whatever. I've tried multiple different options including "application frame".

If anyone can point me in the right direction I will be forever grateful :)

The three icons showing in your screenshot are your main Photoshop icons.

Exactly like they are in your screenshot with the icons below the Apple logo is what I'm missing.

The attachment shows what I see currently when I open PS. No icons and I can't seem to 'add' them in.

Try resetting your prefs.......

On a Mac, hold Shift + Option + Command while starting Photoshop to delete the preferences.

Try this......

On the frame window (Window>Application Frame set to on) resize the Photoshop window by clicking on the bottom right corner (resize handle) and dragging it up and to the left to make the window smaller. Photoshop then displays the window correctly with the Close, Minimize, Maximize buttons displayed. Seems to be a bug in Photoshop, in my case it was CS6.


Also, make sure your on standard screen mode.

OK after the reset the icons are back. So I thank you for that :) No clue what I may have done to mess it up the first time.


Thanks again for your help. I was ready to jump off a mountain!
