When I press the space bar the cursor changes to a hand, as it should, but the hand does not move the image. I have tried this function on two different laptops with the same result.

System Info: Win 7, 64bit, Photoshop CS5, (all updates current), Quad Core I7 Sony Laptop.

Do you have a tablet?

Any 3rd party utilities installed? Any other applications running at the same time?

If you restart the computer and only run Photoshop, does this problem persist?

I have a Wacom tablet that works properly with the "move function." The trackpad problem occurs with, or without, the tablet connected.

3rd party utilities are "OnOne" resize

Problem occurs even when Photoshop is the only running user application.
