Resize proportions are always locked since last update!

When resizing any kind of layer, the proportions are locked. When I click the lock icon to unlock it it doesn't work. It remains locked. I'm unable to resize layers freely. I've been using Photoshop for over 10 years and never had this issue before. It's been happening since the last update. I'm using Windows and I have the same issue on 2 different computers.

By the way, when creating vector shapes and changing the feather, Photoshop sometimes crashes. This one has been going on for years.

The resizing is now by default keeping the aspect ratio.
You have to use shift to resize freely.
This was introduced in the CC 2019 update.

Oh wow... But there is still a "lock" button that doesn't seem to do anything? 
I really dislike this change and I have no idea why they did it.
But thanks a lot for the reply!!

You are right Cheila  The constrain link on the toolbar does not work. It is a bug and it's been reported here. .

Bug. Maintain Aspect Ratio constrain link on the toolbar does not work. 
Adobe Photoshop Version: 20.0.0 20180920.r.24 2018

When you un-check the Maintain Aspect Ratio constrain link on the toolbar and then use transform it still maintains aspect ratio. . . un-checking the link should disable aspect ratio shouldn't it? 

The shift key + transform disables aspect ratio but doesn't correspond with the constrain link on the tool bar.

The "lock" button I think you are refering to is (as far as I understand) only to link or unlink the aspect ratio when you enter the percentage in the toolbar, nor for dragging the anchor points.
Makes sense to me, although I also have to get used to not use shift when I want to keep te aspect ratio when resizing.

It's limited. More profesional feature covered both Options inputs and resizing by mouse.
