Remove tool is stuck. Keyboard shortcuts to switch to other tools just jump back to remove tool. WTF

This is driving me CRAZY.  When I'm done with the remove tool I press, for example, b for brush, or l for lasso, etc. I see the chosen tool activate for a second, then the remove tool activates again. If I select a new tool by clicking on the toolbar, that works. I have tried clicking off the canvas, pressing escape, etc. and once this behaviour starts it just doesn't stop. What am I doing wrong? I'm on a dual monitor setup working with a cintiq tablet, and having to reach for the mouse, switch to my other monitor and click the darn toolbar every time is a real drag compared to my beloved keyboard shortcuts.

Latest version of Photoshop as of 28-02-2024, Windows 11 PC.

 

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Never mind, I found out what it is. In Edit>Preferences>Tools there is a setting for "spring-loaded tool shortcuts." This was checked, although I definitely did not turn this on myself. I unchecked it, and now my tool shortcuts are working properly. I will leave this here in case it helps someone else.
