Windows 7: Photoshop CS4 title bar has vanished

Photoshop CS4 title bar has vanished


I'm running Photoshop CS4 in Win7 64 bit; I installed it a few days ago. Until today it had a title bar, Aero style. Today that has vanished; there's nothing above the Photoshop menu line; so I can't drag the window. Bridge still has its title bar, as do all my other programs.

I've done the usual Photoshop thing of trashing the Preferences file; and I've rebooted. Neither has made any difference. Has this happened to anyone else?

Well, I've got egg on my face. The reason I don't have a title bar is (quoting from a CS4 review), 'There’s no longer a title bar to consume extra screen real estate unnecessarily.'!

I guess I must have been running it maximized before yesterday, and didn't notice the 'no title bar' phenomenon.

And I *can* drag the window. You just click in a grey bit of the menu line and drag.

Sorry for taking up bandwidth.


I'll also post this to the Photoshop Forum, where they thought it might be the video card.

OK as the subject/title eludes to. I have Windows 7 Ultimate MCE and although it's recording OK, in the logs a few shows give me a recording conflict with themselves. So like "Bones was not recorded due to a conflict with Bones". In the history it records Bones and then also has an entry that...

OK, I've had one or two times where I could have sworn I wrote a post in some particular thread and later there were new replies, but my own post was totally gone. I just saw this again in a thread about Macrium Reflect and I KNOW I posted there last night. I'm guessing that a mod is removing...
