Photoshop CC 2015 always on top...


New Member
I was using this version for a long time now and recently it started to act weird.
For some reason, photoshop stays always on top until I alt-tab to a different window. It goes over windows task bar and is especially annoying because I can't use Quixel suite and similar software properly - each time I click on photoshop, quixel panels become hidden behind it (even though all quixel panels are set to be "always on top").

Googling for a solution didn't help. So I'm posting here in hopes that maybe someone has any ideas what may be causing this?

Here's a screenshot of what I'm talking about (I intentionally made a smaller window to properly show that it overlaps everything):

Hi and welcome to PSG

The first thing I would suggest is resetting PS preferences

Failing that you could try re-installing PS using the Adobe Cleaner Tool to remove it first

I think I remember reading a similar issue with PS over in the Adobe forum but can't find the post, maybe you could check out over there as well

Resetting preferences did not help. However, it did help to find out a culprit and it was Lazy Nezumi. I needed it for some delicate patterns that I had to make by hand. And after I deleted photoshop's preferences (I made a backup, don't panic!), I launched it and saw that taskbar doesn't go behind ph's window until Nezumi pops up.
I guess I'd better report this issue to developers of Lazy Nezumi then...

Apologies for wasting space here :)
