My "line tool" is stuck as an "arrow"

#1
Never run into this one before...all of a sudden, my regular photoshop line tool is drawing an ARROW with an arrow head on it, and I can't get it to stop. Look:

The line tool is clearly selected, but it draws an arrow when I try to draw a line. It's as though it's "stuck" drawing a custom shape (of an arrow)...all of the other shapes work normally...it's just the line tool (which i need lol!) that draws arrows. I've closed and re-opened PS, no dice.

The *only* thing I can think of: I was using the line tool normally, and then i changed the "weight" to 2.0 cm to see what would happen...then it started started drawing arrows...so I thought "hm...weird", and i changed the weight back to 0.5cm. But now I'm stuck with arrows all the time! That 'weight' thing is probably unrelated to the problem, but just thought i'd mention it.

on your left circle click that black arrow and navigate to reset tool that should fix it if not close photoshop hold down cntrl + shift + and alt and reclick photoshop icon when it says are you sure you want to delete the preference file select yes and that will restore all tools back to default settings

I remember this happening to me once.. you probably just ticked the box by mistake somehow?

Click the Geometry Options button on the tool bar, that's where you set the arrow options. If you uncheck the start/end boxes it will be a line only.
