Often when I undo a step in Photoshop, a different layer is selected from the layer I was working on. How can I turn off this super-annoying feature?

It even happens after I've done several steps on the current layer but only undo one step. WHY would it jump to a layer from 3 steps ago?

If you only want to undo the last operation use Ctrl (Cmd)+Z (Edit>Undo) instead of clicking in the history panel to undo.
