Illustrator Window hopping around constantly - unusable
A lot of times when I use any illustrator function, like switching to layers, switching panes, or choosing any tool - the window just jumps away.
What the heck is that? It makes it unusable because my window just jumps around on the screen?

Mine is jumping between screens on every click. Sometimes it moves screens, sometimes it reduces size to have screen width.
macOS 14.0 (23A344)
Confirming similar issue with Photoshop 25. This one does not jump screens but does refuse to stay maximized. While drawing it will keep drawing as the screen size changes so just scribbles over the work.
Well, not exactly native, it belongs to PowerToys, which is native, but had to be installed and enabled first... I don’t use, but use another similar but old app instead, without problems. My display is not that wide, but I’d try to verify it. Thanks for the report!
I'm not entirely sure - I'm using Illustrator not that often. It does not happen with Photoshop, tho.
It's a Windows 10 native feature, Fancy Zones. Im using that as I have an ultra-wide 5120x1440 display to work on. And it works with pretty much any other program (including Photoshop).
And it also happens when making the image smaller or adding it in another "zone"
Weird! How long ago did it start to happen?
What resolution does your display has?
Do you have any snapping utilities installed and running? (I am seeing a white flesh which makes the window snap and I don’t recognize it as a native Windows 10 feature).
Does it still happen if you make a window a bit smaller and try to place it elsewhere?
Does the same happen with Photoshop or InDesign?
