This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Photoshop: Tool keyboard shortcuts keep picking first tool and not remembering what I used before
How to reproduce this issue:
Start out by drawing with the pencil tool, press "v" to switch to the move tool, and then press "b" again to switch back to the pencil tool. I get the brush tool instead of getting my previously-selected pencil tool. Same thing happens if you select the Elliptical Marquee Tool, then press "v" to switch to the move tool, then press "m" to switch back to the Elliptical Marquee Tool -- you get the default Rectangular Marquee tool instead. This didn't happen for me in the previous version of Photoshop, and it's making it difficult to take advantage of shortcut keys.
Seems similar to this issue from 2015:
