Crop to selection not working

Hey there! All of a sudden, the "Crop to Selection" option is grayed out for me under both Image and Layer. I've tried different file types, existing files, new files... I've unistalled & reinstalled Gimp. It still won't let me crop anything no matter what I try! Any suggestions?

I'm on Windows 7 (64-bit ) running the latest version of Gimp (2.10.6)

Thank you!

Thank you!

I had the same issue, after much messing around I found that my selection tool mode was set to "Subtract", not the normal default of "Replace". No idea how I did this, but it stayed that way even after a reboot.

I found if I double clicked on the selection tool, it would highlight the configuration, and at the top there I could change the mode back to normal (also using Shift would do what I needed).

Hopefully this helps someone else!

Thank both of you, humans from the far distant past. You have saved that bitch I was about to choke, and she will be forced to build statues to honor you.

Yes, the answers here helped me, I had to change the Rectangle Select Mode to "Replace" and then select again; thanks!
