Unselecting a tool - Adobe Photoshop Elements

I have noticed that after using a selected tool, it stays on whenever the cursor is placed over a subsequently opened picture file - I can easily change to another tool by clicking, but I can't seem to get back to a neutral arrow cursor. Is there anyway to unselect all tools and just have the arrow cursor back?...

    Default Re: Unselecting a tool

    Hi, David. No, that's just how it is--one tool is always selected. See this thread for some favorite "parking" spots:
