Resetting Tool Options in Photoshop CC

Adobe Photoshop

Control -click (Mac) | Right -click (Win) the tool icon in the Options bar (officially called the Tool Preset Picker) and choose Reset Tool or Reset All Tools to set the tool options (found in the Options bar) to their default state.  This shortcut is a great way to trouble-shoot a tool when it’s not working as you think it should (perhaps the tool’s blend mode, feather, or other option was changed the last time you used it, and you didn’t reset it).  

Note: this shortcut doesn’t reset the visibility or grouping of the tools, only their options.
