Photoshop CC 2019: Layers don't properly select or other layers are selected

Just upgraded to the newest versions of Photoshop CC and other latest adobe cc apps (Im a creative cloud subscriber). Is anyone experiencing issues with layer selections, specifically grouped layers, not working correctly? I'm using a 2016 Macbook... video enclosed. Layers don't properly select, or other layers are selected. Or, am I just missing something obvious?

With the move tool selected, what is the Auto-Select setting set to I the toll options ? Try swapping between Group and Layer and see which setting works the way you’re expecting.

Thanks for this. Turning off autoselect entirely solved this cc 2019 annoyance for me

It's always interesting how people discover things after an update, even things that have nothing to do with that update. Auto Select is nothing new for CC2019.

Tiny bit patronising tbh. He's a Digital Imaging Production Manager, and I'm a designer for 30 + years and we BOTH were stuck with this. Maybe it's not that intuitive?
