I have all my Illustrator and Photoshop toolbars scattered throughout my desktop, and I simply want all of my menus, toolbars, and files to be within one window.

This is often super annoying because the toolbars don't pop up when my files are open depending on what desktop I am on.

Going to the "Window" menu, and checking "Application Frame" will condense all toolbars and files into one window in Illustrator and Photoshop (using CS6).

+1 Nice tip! Never knew about that before, I thought it was just something we had to endure while working on a Mac. –  user568458 Jan 22 '13 at 13:31
