Photoshop: Move tool no longer moves the layer selected

Move tool no longer moves the layer selected like it had for the last 20 years, I assume its a bug.

I created new document, unlocked background and dragged layer (in canvas), so it works in CC 2019.

Perhaps you have ‘Auto Select’ turned on? You can easily select something else (like the background layer) that way without realising it.

I would suspect Auto-Select is not checked as well.

Thanks guys for all your comments / help! Turning off "Auto-Select" resumed the expected behavior.
