When in the process of moving a layer (see screen, I am moving the Text Layer) Photoshop adds a strange grey rectangular stroke.

Could anyone tell me how to remove this? It makes small adjustments harder and I don't really see the point.

This happens on default Photoshop CS6 settings.

Do you mean the 'fuzziness / blur' ? If so, that's the brush type? If not, then I'm sorry I don't understand the question – Dave Jul 16 '12 at 13:58
On the screen I am moving the layer with text "Begin." and Photoshop shows the grey border around this layer. Does this make it clearer? – Oleg Jul 16 '12 at 14:09
Yes, there should be something called outline, or outline selection? I'm not infront of photoshop at the moment. If you mean just having it turned off generally, you can do Control + Shift + H. I think you're referring to the target path (if short cut doens't work, try View > Show > Target Path menu item) – Dave Jul 16 '12 at 14:11
It's just showing you the bounding box of the contents of the text layer. It's not part of the image. – martineau Jul 16 '12 at 14:52
Dave, "Target Path" is greyed out and not active, there is no "check" sign on it as well. – Oleg Jul 16 '12 at 15:26
