Manage brush size with wacom: how avoid irritating pop-up brush menu?

I have been using the wacom tablet for years to manage my brush size and harshness on the fly with the lower button of the pen. Recently, I have uprgaded to the new Wacom Intuos pro. After installing the same pen-settings, there is quite an annoying problem. When using the pen for enlarging or decreasing the brush size, it doesn't do the job but instead lets the fly-out menu of brush settings pop up the screen. After trying multiple times the normal function takes the winning hand again. But this is irritating, as it slows down my workflow considerably.

I have been looking for a solution on the internet, but have found none. Anyone any idea??

Thanks in advance! Rob

Thanks JJ! But sorry, doesn't work, the only thing that happens is the popping up of the flout brush menu -:(. Not even a chance for altering size and hardness.

(I have set the pen settings to alt-ctrl-left-right. It used to work perfectly ....)

If that does not work somthing is interfearing with Adobe Photoshop's feature. Reset you Photoshop Preferences and Tools. If the does not fix your problem. Do a search for problems with that feature.

In Photoshop 2019, at least with the Intous Pen & Touch, the command to size the brush tip is Ctrl + Alt + right-click and drag right/left.  Up and down changes the Opacity.
