Click location not at cursor location

I'm trying to use Photoshop 2021 (22.5.1) on Windows 10 Pro 64 bit - I'm using a laptop with a 4k display and a secondary 4k display.

 

Whenever I try to use any selection tool on my secondary display, the selected area is offset above and to the right of the cursor position. In the attached screengrab, the point at the left-hand end of the straight line is where the cursor was at the start of the selection, the point at the right-hand end of the straight line is where the selection began. Unfortunately, the screengrab doesn’t capture the mouse cursor, but it’s near the left-hand end of the straight line.

 

If I try this on the laptop display, the issue is mirrored, and the selection is above and to the left of the cursor position.

 

The issue also affects dropdown menus – if I click on the Help menu, the help menu correctly appears, but as soon as I move the mouse cursor onto the Help menu, it closes, and the View menu opens. Menu items and sub-menus can be correctly selected, as can controls and buttons in dialogues.

 

This issue only affects Photoshop and makes it unusable. All other applications such as Lightroom work correctly.

I think I found a solution (both my monitors have the same resolution, are aligned, but have slightly different scaling). All I needed to do was switch the primary monitor over, save and then switch it back and save again. It seems to have resolved it and after a couple of restarts it’s still working ok.
