Typically I view my photos via File Explorer. My app 'Photos' has just suddenly started opening my pictures in minimised screen. Up until now it always opened in maximised screen (not full screen).

I have tried stretching the window out to edge of screen and close using x at top right. It doesn't stick. Nothing seems to work.

Is this expected behaviour now?

Running; Photos app 2024.11050.29009.0

Same here, starting just today. Hate it! Why is Photos all of a sudden not retaining its window sizing from previous use, like other Windows programs?!

This is the new photos app and very annoying like most new "features", luckily the Photos legacy app is available to download in the Microsoft store. Once installed and file associations switched over it behaves as it always has but you miss out on Designer and Clipchamp shortcuts in the tool bar, how much of a loss that is will be personal preference :D
