If you disable Preferences > Performance... "Use Graphics Processor" and restart Photoshop, does the Hand tool work as expected?

Can you make a video of what you're seeing?

Howdy Hamza,

Are you on Win or Mac?  What are you using for a keyboard?  What kind of mouse are you using? Are you using a tablet?  What kind?

Thanks,
David

Is there a "reset tools" in the drop-down menu in that version?

I just had that happen. When I took the image out of 100% the hand tool worked fine (moving image around the screen). To check I put the image back to 100% and it did not work.
