Photoshop: Alt-clicking on Add Mask switches to another opened file

This doesn't happen every time, but often when I alt+click on the add mask button in the layers panel , it will switch to another opened file and apply the mask to a layer in that one instead. Is this happening to anyone else? I'm on OSX 10.13.4

Howdy Nick,

Are you, by chance, using something more than a standard keyboard and mouse?  If so, what additional hardware are you using?
