Pardon me while I (again) say nasty things about MS Windows 10 . . . !

What now?  When editing a photo in PhotoshopElements (for example, using the magnetic lassor tool), the screen will suddenly "jerk" -- and the tool will "complete itself" even though I'm not done with the draw. 

Please:  Anyone have any information about what the problem is and how to stop this from happening?

 

Thank you.  Appreciated.

The magnetic lasso tool is very finicky. Here is what has helped me to set down the anchor points in making a selection:

1. Increase the contrast of the underlying picture

2. If the tool "jerks" ahead too far, hit the delete key on the keyboard to go backwards, and set anchor points closer together

3. When the selection is complete, place the selection on a new layer (press CTRL+J), and tidy up with the eraser tool.
