Issues with mouse not working correctly in Photoshop 2020

I'm having an issue where my mouse can not move any layers around. I can move layers with my arrow keys, but when I click a layer with my mouse it will select the layer, but I cannot move it or resize. This is the same for cropping or anything that requires resizing. Same thing happens if I try and use a brush tool, clone tool, etc- it will show where I first clicked, but will not drag and follow the mouse. This happened before and I reinstalled Photoshop 2020, but it's happening again so I can only imagine I toggled something and don't know how to reset it. 

I've also just noticed that Shift isn't working to select multiple layers. 

If it helps, I am a former Mac user trying to figure out life on PC, and I know I have been accidently using Mac shortcuts over here, so it's entirely possible I did something on my own and can't figure out how to reset it. 

Any help is super appreciated. Thanks!

I believe Photoshop 2020 has problems like this.  PS 2020 performances goes to pot,  there is Lag.  Tools become none responsive or there is a big delay. Restarting Photoshop seems clear the issue for some time.   I can not nail down what triggers that bug to bite.  It has bitten me a few times out of the blue.  Many have reported performance issues with PS 2020

Photoshop has become a real Pain in the ass. My mouse just works right now outside the work window. I have 2 little moves to be finished and to submit my work on time. But OHHH NOOO. Photoshop just cuts out.

AND THEN! To hunt around and ask a question regarding my issue on this forum, I gotta get a code sent to an expired phone number, get it resent to an updated alternate email address, then enter a screen name (mine describe how Adobe is making me feel!) and now I can get on here and read about other people's problems and other users' fixes that didn't work.

WHERE IS PHOTOSHOP SUPPORT these DAYS???

So frustrating...

I have same issue. Photoshop become so useless. Because this issue causes to restart Photoshop, and it increase length of any task at least twice.

Did you figure out how to fix your mouse problem? My mouse or tablet pen will not work ON a photo but they will both work everywhere else around the photo. I have no idea how to fix it!

I'm having issues where I click on something in the menu such as "View" the menu drops down but as soon as I move my cursor at all, the "Type" menu drops down.  It's like as soon as I click, the cursor becomes inaccurate. As if it's two inches to the left.
