In Photoshop, when you have the Text tool selected, pressing v on the keyboard switches to the Move tool. However, if you have an active text box (bounding box showing), you’ll find out that instead of selecting the Move tool, Photoshop types v into the text box. So first, you have to deactivate the text box.

If you press (not return). Then press v to activate the Move tool.
