Down Arrow after zoom

Aug 16, 2012 12:55 PM

If I zoom with the mouse scroll "alt scroll" then press the down arrow it opens my file menu, this is 100% reproducable. Zoom any other way will not open the menu. I have searched the shortcuts and can not find any shortcut associated with opening the file menu.


How can I stop this?


BTW windows 7 system , fully updated cs5

    Okay the File menu in photoshop. That's because the alt key is activated which generally on windows in photoshop activates the menus unless you have another modifier key pressed..

    You could just tap the alt key again to escape from the menu activation before using the arrow key or you could set the preference in Edit>Preferences>General>Zoom with Scroll Wheel to avoid that.
