I have been using Photoshop Elements 7 for several years but just got a new computer and it came with Photoshop Elements 10. I use PE for my photography business and went to use the quick selection tool as I usually do to high-lite an area of the face (such as the eye sockets) that are shadow and need to be lightened. The quick selection tool will not release with the ESC button like it used to in PE7 and I have no idea how to release the tool so I can continue editing.

Any idea what I am supposed to do? I have searched the internet for answers and hit almost every button I can to try and let goof the tool once I have finished the edit I need to do and it won't let loose.

Esc still works on macs.

You could just Select>Deselect or Ctrl+D. (cmd-d on a mac)

Are you using windows 7?
