Photoshop Hijacks Your Cursor

I came across an interesting webdev bug today.

For some reason, on my site, my cursor was not working correctly. When hovering over links or buttons or elements that set cursor: pointer, my cursor did not turn into a pointer hand; instead, it stayed as a regular ol’ cursor.

This was odd. I didn’t change any styling that could affect this. I took to Google, and the first link gave me the right answer:

I saw that I was indeed running Photoshop at the time. I closed it, and my cursor began acting normally.

How strange!

If anyone can shed light as to why Photshop and other programs do this, please let me know!o
