Auto-divide Slice Tool problem

Hello, I have a problem with the newest version of Photoshop. It seems this version's Slice Tool works in a slightly different way. 

In Photoshop CC 2015 that I've been using till now, when I made a slice and then right clicked and chose "Divide slice", the divided slices were all selected (orange) afterwards and I could move/adjust them as I liked without having to select them with the Slice Select Tool.

It seems this is no longer how the tool behaves, because in the 2019 version, after clicking "OK" in the "Divide slice" panel, the slices are all unselected (blue) and I cannot adjust them. The only way to do it is to select them with the other tool. This takes a large amount of time though, because even with using Shift I have to manually select each singular slice. 

I would appreciate if someone would provide me a solution to this problem, or maybe a way to bypass it completely. 

Cheers
