So... do we have to guess what version of after effects you have... or are you going to tell us?
Hi, thanks for the question. Its After Effects CC (2017)

OK. In the timeline, look at the panel menu - the three horizontal lines in the tab. You've probably got: "Enable Auto Keyframing" on.
Select it to switch it off.
Thanks for that. You are correct auto keyframe is on.
However there does not seem to be a way of switching it off here.
Should I be able to click this icon and turn it on and off?
If so its not happening.
Select it from the menu and that will uncheck it (turn it off) for new properties.
Any properties that are already animating will need to have their blue stop watches clicked off manually.
Thanks, I was being dumb.
That has sorted it.
No problem - glad you got it sorted : )
Please mark the question as answered.
