I've finished rotating and am trying to deselect the Rotate Tool. If I click on the image, the Rotate box reappears, undesiredly. If I click anywhere else, nothing happens.

The Select > None tool is unavailable and greyed.

    Select > None is for unselecting any selected areas of the image (not a tool). What's wrong with leaving the Rotate tool active? – dsstorefile1 May 9 '18 at 3:22

    Then don't click. What do you want clicking on the image to do instead? – dsstorefile1 May 9 '18 at 3:27

    OK. Switch to the Move tool, then. – dsstorefile1 May 9 '18 at 3:30

There is always an active tool in Gimp. To deselect a tool you have to select another one. Some people use the "Measure" tool as their default tool, since it is the one less likely to change something by mistake in the image.
