Using Alt and Ctrl for any shortcut does not work properly

In the previous version of Photoshop (CC 2017.1.1), I could use shortcuts that contained both Alt and Ctrl in any order with the proceeding keystroke (e.g., Alt+Ctrl+Z). Now in Photoshop CC 2018, I can only do commands like these by pressing Ctrl first, not Alt, which is definitely not what the menu says to do. This causes many issues because now I have to try the shortcut again for it to execute since I always press Alt first. So far, I see this issue in only the Step Backward command, but it may occur in other places. I am running on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.

This should be resolved in the 19.0.1 release which is currently available for update. Please update Photoshop using the Creative Cloud desktop app and let us know how it goes.
