I accidentally pressed the Option key (Mac keyboard) iin addition to pressing Command - V to paste. And a new window opened without tools or other palettes. I could't get rid of the window without force-quitting Photoshop. Can anyone tell me what happened and what to do if I get in that situaiton again?

Cmd+Opt+V is the shortcut for the vanishing point dialog. There is a "Cancel" button in the upper right.

Adding to the reply from jane-e, the ESCape key should also cancel if you can't see a button to do so.

 

If you have no need for this feature you could change or remove the keyboard shortcut.

Thank you, Stephen A. Marsh. It's always good to have additional information. I should probably explore the vanishing point feature.
