Annoying alt + left click bug

The latest photoshop 2020 update is making me crazy.
I'm using alt + left click on layer folders often to collapse all folders at once but since yesterday whenever I do this, my active PSD zooms in fullview. It's really annoying because I have to change my view again every few minutes

 

I tried looking for the shortcut so I can simply change it, but there isn't one with alt + left click.


Does anyone know a quick fix for this or do I have to wait for the next update and hope it will get fixed soon?

Hello, update Photoshop to v 21.1 as there is a fix for the unwanted zoom to layer content:

Hi

Alt+click on a layer is the new shortcut to zoom in to a layer's content .

To expand/contract all groups, Ctrl+click on the arrow next to the group folder

Hi davescm,

thank you for your fast answer.

Unfortunately it's not solving my problem because ctrl+click doesn't collapse all the folders within main folder like alt+click does. 😞

Same problem here, slightly different cause though: when I cmd+option click a layer thumbnail to deselect its contents, it also zooms to the layer content. I hope this gets solved soon because it's a regular part of my workflow.

This is mega annoying. Building a website with multiple layers and using this shortcut to collapse layer folder contents. It collapses and zooms into the folder area of the document. This is such a bad feature.

I'd rather specify: It's the "left mouse + alt key" when click on styles arrow on ricth side of layers > in old version it's just collapse all open styles, now (for years) add to zoom.

"the latest version 3.25.1 (Windows)" - I mean 25.3.1
And why is this marked as "Correct answer", when I just have the same problem without solution?
