PHOTOSHOP Quick Key issue

If I hold down the the Quick Key for the Hand Tool, It zooms out and gives me a box to focus to a new part of the canvas.

The way it used to work is me being able to select the quick key and drag the canvas at the current zoom percentage without zooming out. It also used to auto quit the tool and returned me to the last one I was using.

This issue only came about after installing Photoshop to my new computer. It worked fine on my old one.

The shortcut key nor the hand tool is the spacebar.

It sounds like you have something on your system that is using the space bar as a shortcut for something else, and either changing the input to Photoshop, or doing some other operation (OS setting, utility, etc.).
