Is there a way on Windows if I hit the "V" key it always selects the move tool instead of the "View" menu item.
I find a few times I will hit a hotkey and the top menu is selected rather than the tool.
Secondly, if I am on a curve dropdown to go through the channels or I am on the blending modes and apply a blending mode. It puts a blue box around the dropdown and if I hit the arrow keys it changes the blending modes as if I am scrolling through them rather than changing a curve point (for example) which is the behavior that I have on my Macbook.
Basically after I change something in a dropdown on my Macbook it does not change until I go into the drop down again, but on Windows it doesn't back off the dropdown unless I click ESC or manually click off.
It's Windows creating persistent UI states and that can easily be triggered inadvertently just by holding keys or mouse buttons for too long. Not really much you can do about it and not really a bug, just an inconvenience. If you're really feeling adventurous you can delve into your Registry and hack some of these settings just like disabling some system-wide shortcuts helps, but generally this is more a matter of adapting your habits and muscle memory rather than trying to battle the system.
