Sometime in the past week, the Ctrl + D keyboard shortcut for Deselect has stopped working for me. I'm not sure what else I can try- I've uninstalled and reinstalled, I've changed my keyboard, I've messed with the Legacy Compositing preference and I've Reset Preferences. I'm using Photoshop CC. Any ideas?

What is shown under Edit> Keyboard shortcuts Application menus > Select > Deselect ?

If that shows the correct shortcut, try resetting preferences (Preferences >General >Reset Preferences on Quit)

I have this same issue. My shortcuts show the CTRL+D deselect, I've reset my preferences, I've made sure my keyboard actually works. Seems like a very arbitrary issue...

Hi

If you checked Edit > Keyboard shortcut as shown by Dave earlier in this thread and confirmed Deselect is correctly assigned, then:

  • Try Ctrl+D with the other Ctrl key
  • Reboot and launch only Photoshop to see if another application has taken over the shortcut
  • Try another keyboard

Came across this thread looking for an answer to the same problem. I'm working in Win10 Photoshop CS5.5. I have noticed that this shortcut and a couple of others that use the control key only work if you use the RIGHT hand key, but not the left. I have tried reset prefs. I have tried changing keyboards. I have tried resetting the shortcut within photoshop but it's like the control key doesn't exist. I can ctrl+S and save with the left ctrl key, but not deselect. Thoughts?

Try rebooting with no other applications running — including your browsers and anything in Startup — and see if it works. Sometimes another application takes over the shortcuts.
