Photoshop CC 20.0.2: Drag over to select

When making a selection I have to drag over the item to be selected. I can not just click it to select. 
Example: when I want to select an item in the window if I click on that layer in the window it will not select it. I have to click holding down then drag over which then selects.Even for a single item. I am using macOS Version 12.0.1. PS Version 20.0.2

Are you making a pixel selection using a specific selection tool? (E.g. Quick Select tool or Magic Wand)

Or, are you trying to select layers in the layers panel by clicking on the canvas with the Move Tool?
