Hey, @donaldh15847899. I'll help you figure this out. Has this started to happen recently?
Try resetting the Select & Mask workspace, to begin with. In the Select & Mask workspace, go to the top right corner & click on the downward arrow & select Reset Select and Mask.
If this does not help, ensure Photoshop is in the default state. Go to the location of the preference folder below and rename it to backup. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/preferences.html
- Windows 10/11: Users/[user name]/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop [version]/Adobe Photoshop [version] Settings
- Press Windows + R & type this is the Run Window - %APPDATA%\Adobe
- Rename the Adobe Photoshop folder by adding a .old at the end. (Adobe Photoshop 2023 > Rename > Adobe Photoshop 2023. old)
These changes will give a fresh start to Photoshop as a fresh install. Let me know how it goes.
